Pun -ch Line

I am cut from a different cloth, a different breed. I have kissed many frogs but only one prince. I follow the golden rule – as much as possible. But if you piss me off I will “cut you”.

I have learned that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. That crème rises to the top. The truth always shows itself; if you can wait long enough.

What goes around will eventually come around. That words and actions are often inconsistent. That money can’t buy you happiness.

Home is where you can breathe; not just a shelter and a manicured lawn. That love should be unconditional but rarely is; and  time does not heal. Hatred comes from fear. Kindness is demonstrated in simple actions. That being by yourself does not equate to being lonely. That writing and walking are cheaper than therapy. That beauty is in the eye of the beholder and what shines is not always gold.
