The Empath’s Output

I finished watching Soundtrack this week. I give it 4.5 Kitten Stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ One thing that the main character said which resonated with me was that all songs are about love. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bRqe7eBqmw&t=79s The search for it, finding it, losing it, recovering from it, living with it or without it, keeping it alive when we are …

Everything You Need

This week has been really busy. Thankfully I am finally well. My doctor put me onto steroids on Monday as my cough was not improving. I did not read the instructions and only took one tablet the first day but the next morning I took the full dose of 6 pills and it made me …

Those voices reminded me that I …

Act Two

Considering that I was worried about being able to endure a full week, this week flew by! I find if you are out midweek it makes the week feel shorter. The monotony of our week was broken up on Wednesday when we attended the Opera at the Artscape. It was organized by my friend, a …
