I write as a way of life: stories, blogs, articles, almost-poems. I'm a freelancer, a vegetarian, and I listen to Leonard Cohen and enjoy French films. We are dying a little more with each new day we live, so shouldn't we make the most of our time?

Too bad the other sentences are doubtful!
Must’ve been a big emerald.
As always, love the artwork!

Ouch, How big was this emerald?
About the size of a chicken egg.
OH MY GOD! My sincere sympathy! LOL!
