Rattling Bones


The greatest sin one could possibly commit in todays culture is the failure of self-fulfillment. The message of today is pursue your dream, follow your heart, do what makes you happy, don’t settle for less. The individual rules. Each self must determine what is right for them. Stories abound of floundering souls “finding” themselves. In days past, I also carried this mission. It had many days of lordship and its message still echoes in the recesses of my being.
