Adventure

When we get to the point in the discussion where, well, what’s the story really about? I try to get them to totally visualize themselves in this story. So I say, imagine yourself on a cart.

Like winter

“DECEMBERUNDERGROUND is a time and a place. It is where the cold can huddle together in darkness and isolation. It is a community of those detached and disillusioned who flee to love, like winter, in the recesses below the rest of the world.”-Davey Havok I found this very interesting statement made by AFI’s frontman regarding […]

Quiz time

Haven’t had a quiz here in a long time! Soooooooooooooo….this from Cheryl: Who is your inner European? Mine is Irish: “Sprited and boisterous! You drink everyone under the table.” Well, I don’t know about the second part for accuracy. I’m actually quite a light weight with alchohol. But ofcourse I love being identified with the […]

Thought on asking for forgiveness

I would like to dispel a commonly held myth that occurred to me today. That is the perception that to say “I’m sorry” is somehow weak. I say this b/c I found myself feeling that today.
