“Face to Face”

“‘Cause it’ll never go away , until the fear that you are runnin’ from is finally embraced,  Face to Face” I have been listening to this song for 25 years. I have probably sung every word at least 500 times. But I never really listened to the lyrics or the message of the song. It […]

“The Waiting”

Yesterday, the calm and relative happiness that I had achieved over the last few collection of days crumbled in a matter of hours.
