Lunched in the Gut

Day 5 number two?!- What's love got to do with it?

Several things to address. First off, all quiet on the western front? Yes, I live in the western suburbs of Chicago and we are in a time of battle because life is short and love abounds.

2012 Coming to a Close - Reflecting

As this year comes to a close I can't help look back at what has transpired over the last year as most of us do and as we think about this past year there is possibly a few emotions that may arise in reflection.  Maybe a sense of success, failure, triumph, regret, motivation and on and on it goes.  Regardless of what that year entailed whether good bad or indifferent its now past.  Its something to build on for the new year.
