Make a Choice

Please indulge me in this walk down memory lane, there is a point to it, I promise! You can't go home again. Well, you kinda can, I mean I do often, but it isn't always great.

Well, there could be all kinds of metaphors about the road ahead and smooth sailing and mushy stuff like that. However, this is not a flowery post. It is a warning. Here you go- you can thank me later. Some people are actually waiting for you to make a sharp right turn. I'm serious. Call them haters, frenemies, heck, some might even be your friends
