You don't have a problem, you have a condition. The human condition. - February 28th, 2023

Forever in search of the next best self-help book, my last purchase became my last straw.

Tossing it violently across the room, I was not only angry at myself for falling for the thousands of 5-star reviews, but more so furious at . . .

My memories are the building blocks of my history. - March 8th, 2022
