If you love somebody, set them free.
I have my hand on the door and its time for you to leave.
Money can’t buy true love. Or else I would buy your heart and mind, all for me.
What a pretty thing you are so free such unabashed beauty and joy easily can decieve
Think what you like about me now, my words and love are all wasted
Like a court house of love you are the Judge to deem me guilty or innocent, I am no longer afraid
Passed on and passed up I forgot a lesson I learned long ago and was reminded “Be careful boy, love will leave you broken and jaded”
But to me the image of you and I together in my perfect world will never fade
Like a dream you still cling onto long after you’ve awakened, I smile knowing you will always be with me in my dreams always, forever more elated.
A very insightful article on the expectation of Dark Knight Rises and what the film media has hyped themselves and their movies up to be.

I don’t think it’s fair to single out Batman fans. We saw the same…

A perfect piece to go along with my “media and your kids” post
In honor of the late Stephen Covey…
Sarcasm aside, Stephen Covey should have written a book with the abovementioned title. Not that he failed spectacularly as a father, but because people tend to more readily grasp what doesn’t work, as opposed to what does. Like tightrope walking, for instance—without a net. In a practical sense, Seven Habits would’ve been an invaluable guide for parents, highlighting the antithesis of good advice as it relates to the uncertain nature of raising children. Countless individuals, myself included, could’ve then avoided seven of the biggest pitfalls of child rearing—all of which I’ve shamelessly embraced since the advent of motherhood. So in the true spirit of generosity and irreverence, I’ve compiled a list of that which you would do well to eschew.
1) STOCKPILE EXACTLY NOTHING IN YOUR DISCIPLINARY ARSENAL, rendering you categorically ineffective (read: utterly deplorable) when it comes to dealing with ill-mannered children…
