    The Hotel in My Head

    I’ve always been a bit peculiar  in my way of thinking and one dear friend once told me that my brain must be like a large hotel with a lot of rooms in it. I replied that she was probably correct, but I was sure that many of my rooms were haunted. And for those […]

    Why is it easier to hate than to love?

    I was thinking about the Charleston massacre of nine individuals a couple weeks ago and wondered why it is so much easier to hate other people than it is to love them. Sounds weird but it’s true.

    We all dream of finding that “certain someone” who is going to make our lives wonderful.
