We have all done it.  In a hurry, we race out of our neighborhood faster than we should, until the neighbor who use to be a crossing guard shoots us an unforgiving look while giving us the universal sign to slow down. It is not in this annoying, judgmental way that I a...

The older I get, the less I want. I have been worried about that lately. Maybe I have somehow abdicated my will to live, yet life seems to be getting better. I am just not that interested in arguing for my own way of thinking or my own interests.
