Reality Bites

A dive into deprivation

I watched a documentary a while ago about some friends from America that go to a small village in Guatemala for 56 days to see if they can each live on a dollar a day.

On Being Bipolar

**Today’s post was contributed by Honorary Survivor Bunny, Heather Jacobs**   One will never reach the other. One sulks while the other takes excessive risks. One gives up hope while the other is angry. Somewhere between this impossible duo, is me. I am running. I am rushing to take messages from one to the other that everything will […]

I Like To Move It Move It – Reasons To Get Off That Chair

Simplifying Sentimentality
