Hide the Fear of Living

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ (aka The Lucky Few) I went for a walk this morning. Reached the beauty of the briny deep.

As Always

Containment

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ How do we contain what we are? Where are we going at any moment? Will we ever listen to the sky and trees, Let alone the so-called birds and bees? I don’t have answers; perhaps I never will. Still, I will live my life in […]
