A LOOK
INSIDE MY HEAD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others.

Writing
Hollow moments of happiness filled with the chasing hands of time; eternally looping in a frantic chase to outpace and lap the other. A tireless circle that will never reach conclusion until the death of the battery. So far removed from loved ones and fond memories they begin to fade.

Life reminds me of an hourglass; constantly draining away, one piece of sand at a time. Our life can be well-represented by the image of an individual trying to stand firmly on top of this pile of draining sand. Constant readjustment and correction is required simply to stand normally when.
