Perhaps, the mundanities of daily life are killing my dreams, erasing the vision in my head. Every day, this world, where I don’t belong, sucks me in. My passion wears away. I am a rock, eroding. My fire is extinguished and my spirit dies a little each time. >>> It’s exhausting! Am I weakening? Am…… Continue reading A pause in time
