A Quote (or 2), A Link, No Advertising



I've kept a journal for many years, collecting quotes that I think have a message of some sort. I have also included some of my own musings about life and music. I hope you enjoy them and find them helpful.

I also urge you to keep a journal, as it always inspires me to add something new or use the journal to keep my own thinking positive.

You are not replaceable at home.
Home is your real life.
Keep that perspective.

Can lead to depression.
