Quote Left My mind is a blank abyss - entwined in a paradox - an illusion waiting to define reality - a reality wanting to get lost in illusion Quote Right

Quote Left Although it certainly distresses me to inflict anguish upon your consciousness, I deeply regret the painful necessity of telling you the rejoinder to the query which you just posed to me must be in the negative. Quote Right

Quote Left Yesterday's fiction is today's reality and tomorrow's history to be dissected, picked apart, rationalized and set aside with no real resolution, answer or insight. Quote Right

Quote Left When you lie you take away a persons freedom of choice, their right to choose to continue on the same path or to take a different path. You are forever limiting their choices. No matter what the truth may be I would rather know the truth than to make choices based on a lie. Quote Right

What is a Biography? Basically a cumulation of a person's perspective of their own past, accomplishments, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. 

Tired of all the takers always finding myself surrounded by losers. Wondering if there are any givers left in this fictional society we have built ourselves? Spending too much time reflecting on the limited sight of minds continuously immersed in dribble, gossip, humdrum activities, fanatical escapades, unnecessary violence, politics, reform, and ideology. Minds that fail to consider the foundation and that everything in their worlds is based on someone else's idea of what should, or should not be. Not realizing that society is a fantasy that has stagnated and is, in essence, a fantasy world. Not changing perspective to rise above the perceived but instead complaining about the mundane. Yesterday's fiction is today's reality and tomorrow's history to be dissected, picked apart, rationalized, and set aside with no real resolution, answer, or insight. Maybe I am a fixer in need of fixing, or maybe that's just your perception of me.

Can anyone relate, to pain once it begins? No way to escape fate, the broken record never ends. Accept now what is, not longing for should have beens’, What was, is not, what is, what a tragic end; There never was a what was, it's an imagined should have been.

Biographies will change based on current perceptions. All in all, life experience gives us all a better understanding of ourselves and this circus we call life. 

On another note - if you got this far.  I am the granddaughter of Frank Van Zant aka Chief Rolling Mountain Thunder a renowned sculptor (the first to use cement as a medium) whose sculpture that is still standing is a State of Nevada Historical Restoration Project in Imlay, Nevada as well as a descendant of Cynthia (Anna) Crossman poet (6th great grandmother) who was also the grandmother of Seba Smith aka Major Jack Downing the writer who Mark Twain fashioned his writings after.
