More like exploring if you want the truth. This is a great example of geological processes as well as beauty in nature.

Most people would park their cars and walk away, as for myself in the type who could sit in the car for hours looking at the different colors, folds, and bends in the rocks.

I’m Frustrated, I Need To Be Heard

Posted in Love, relationships with tags , on November 16, 2013 by CaliRed

It is frustrating, writing helps a lot in the situation. It’s funny in a way, I mean I was 42 before I really dated anyone, and in my 20’s when I went out on my first date.

All of this angst should have been stuff I went through in High School but I didn’t. So now I’m stuck and trying to communicate and doing a really awful job of it.

I feel a little better about things tonight. I now know that my guy is really busy doing things for other people. It’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but at least I know there is a reason of sorts instead of just thinking I’ve been dumped.

I remember traveling around Hesperia and San Bernardino and just looking at the Mojave River, old golf courses, homes in the area. I remember where a driver wrecked his car and how it took them days to find him. I remember a trip to Silverlake and just looking out over the lake from above. I remember

It’s pretty damned hard to find love for the first time when you’re 42, but I did it, I really did.

I will not give up, I will not go away.
I love him, that is the way it is

I am of the opinion that if you are elected to Public office you should vote the way the majority of your constituents wish you to vote, not in such a manner as to support a family member.

Shame on Senator Portman for betraying his constituents.
