I know what you mean OP.
I shot a robin when I was a kid with my uncles air rifle and while I have killed many other animals since this one haunts me and will till the day I die.

You MoonBlossom, have made my morning. That was very kind and means the world to me. It's not often someone takes the time to express such kindess towards me. I will take this positive feeling/energy you have gifted me and spread it to others throughout the day.
That Poem is great! A novice poet myself, I can very much appreciete. The part about living for yourself (not in a selfish way) resonates with me.
originally posted by: GoShredAKI learned the hard way, I lost my wife over three years ago, upon looking back and wondering why? I noticed that I put myself and all that I am on the back- burner. Meanwhile I was living, breathing, obsessing over living for her. It got to the point where She was all I thought about, and all this energy I was spending was depleting my own energy and turning me into someone completely different, and weak........I forgot who I was, and basically never looked at a mirror.............
But, give me a year to handle that hardship with no distractions, and slowly but surely I re-evolved into my true self. Within a year I learned positive thinking, helping yourself, maintaining faith, and avoiding bad places, can manifest miracles...........I know because I did all of this, as hard and sad as it was at first, I never gave up.
Guess who came back home!!?? Yes she did

On the bright side, you kept that squirrel from nesting in the insulation of your cabin, destructive little bastards. Plus they aren't exactly rare anywhere in the state that has spruce trees.

Apart from the daily marijuana, this song generally fits the bill of feeling good. Rastas worship weed though, it is a sacrament...
Yeah, I have also been feeling a lot better too. I have those moments where I need to let loose emotionally, but my living circumstances are hundreds of times more stable these days. Exercise and musical/creative (and fun sexual) outlets are definitely crucial.
And on the weekends, I'll get my collie herb! haha
It is indeed unfortunate how there is tons of amazing independent music out there, but the stuff that gets all of the attention (and money) is generally-speaking complete and utter crap
