This is a photo of mine that consistently gets a strong response. Local residents marvel that it is one of the guard towers at the Old Idaho Penitentiary near the lustrous Idaho Botanical Garden.

I've thought a lot, recently, about the warning signs in my own life. It is a consistent fact that I always, always see the forest for the trees but choose to take the easy way out. The less confrontational way out.

But not any more.

For those of you who do not think highly of me, that consider me troubled (with a warped sense of the world against me), that consider me manipulative and hiding behind others (like my parents or other family members), that think of me as wild and impetuous (not like those ruled by the moon who are shy and sensitive) I give you a final warning. If you think so poorly of me and yet choose to sit in silence while you read my blog on a regular basis, I suggest you stay away. The fact that you choose to judge and keep tabs on me says far more about your character than mine. If you took the time to be in contact with me, out in the open, you'd find I'm just fine. Better than fine. And maybe even someone you'd enjoy having in your life.
