JoAnn, so true. I hate gossip. And in this building it is buzzing around whether true or not, like vultures over carrion. So I just stay alone in my apartment and away from the other tenants as much as I can. And I am so much happier.

The only person I can try to be better than, is the person I was yesterday

Life is like a camera

Just focus on what's important and capture the good times

Develop the negatives and if things dont work out, just take another shot

The only people that have never made mistakes are the ones that have never tried anything new.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the
hunger for bread.
