Tonight the house is quiet and the silence is almost deafening. It has been a challenging couple of months and the challenges just keep visiting my door. Tonight I need to pour my soul out and I can’t put those things on a page. These are the things I can only tell someone one on one, as I keep the deep secrets of myself locked up pretty tightly. Things could be much worse I know they could. I look around the world and see the terrible things that are happening. and I remind myself of all I have. I keep telling myself things will get better as they always seem to, but tonight is a dark night and the stars seem to have lost their shimmer.
