A haven for being, doing, and then having an exceptional existence.
"Anything you give up will automatically come back to you, albeit in an even more free and beautiful way. Why, then, are people so attached to their dreams and desires? The answer is simple: lack of faith. - Louis Dor Dempriey
Sometimes in life you just wish people would do better. However, the version of better that you wish they would do is inevitably your version of better. This will usually not work because you are not them. So I say to myself, " Isn't it just obvious that such and such is not being carried out properly?"

Once again on the train I observed an action that gave me pause. I was sitting on a relatively empty train. I watched people as I always do.
