It is always good to take the always out. I had them once, the usual shall's and shall not's. But I'd get variously obese with life, and they couldn't hold me in.

Or maybe just more aware of my foolishness...
And maybe that is how wisdom comes for some?

Love Song to The Moment:

For we shall never meet again

You'll give me the gift of the present
The holy Here and Now
And then you'll walk away
Leaving me to bow.

Forehead to the ground
Rising up to know
Something Lost is
Something Found
Life's always on the Go.
