Life On The Fire Escape

Today I feel. I am much more comfortable thinking about my feelings.  Today I just feel them. It feels like I am climbing fire escapes tending to each area of life at once so no one gets left stranded. Right now I am at work.  It’s where I have use of a real computer as…

Rowing With Either Or
