The path has been arduous. It has been very fulfilling. I wrote a song looking up at the mountain I had to climb in the spring of 07. It is called the Other Side. I will record it someday. One line says I know I have friends in the faces I have met. During that spring of independence my job at the coffee shop was so pivotal in my life. I realized I was ok as a person. I saw that I could be funny. That I could connect with people and it gave me back my self respect and esteem. I was able to leave a bad situation and become who I was/am meant to be. I know I am on the right path. Things do not just unfold this way,doors just do not open. I know I have friends in the faces I have met.
