An obligation for one's soul

3 June
This is MY journal.

I post things that I feel need to be posted. Sometimes I whine. Sometimes I praise. Sometimes I post something that amuses me. I have a very eccentric sense of humor. I have an interesting view of life as mine has recently been shortened.

I love people, but I prefer a solitary life. I think like an artist, but am trapped in an encumbered human body. I embrace the classics, the weird, the uplifting. I try to live each day as if it is my last. I reach out to people who seem to need me when I can.

I care- even when you think I am unreachable. I hate telephones- I prefer to write. I love my family even though they hardly hear from me. I worry about others, but am overwhelmed with my daily life so much that I find that days have passed before I realized that I promised something.

I used to be an outgoing, take charge person. I was often mistaken to be a blustery, whirlwind,scary person. That was just the front.I am not that person- despite what you have seen, heard, or think.

I have lived much in my life. I write about it here.
