    Why do people care about these trivial things? Is it because they don't love lives of their own?

    I don't love lives of my own. But how many people really do love lives of their own?
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    ^^ Guess that's why so many of us are fated to come back again and again to new lives, in the hope of getting something right, or at the least learning how to love for the tiny possibility of evolving toward helping to achieve world peace.

    The conversation ^^^ is getting too complicated for me simpleton. 'World peace', 'do and do not love lives of their own' ....

    On Sunday, Johnny and a handful of local LGBTQ and ally movers and shakers will be honored at the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund‘s (DVLF) annual HEROES event. Weir will receive the DVLF’s National HERO award during the main event.

    ^^ Ha, ha, yes!

    All the gossip I've heard from people who've actually met Johnny or who know people who know him intimately, is that Johnny is indeed a nice person no matter the high level scrutiny, judged-to-be poor choices he's made, the personal mistakes he's revealed in his bio, and how often some people have negative gossipy things to say about him.

    As always, what we project onto others reveals more about our own personalities and ways of looking at the world.

    Thank you for fixing my link once again, for some reason no matter what I do, I couldn't get the link to post properly from my laptop.
