Carry your burdens as best you can

Carry your burdens as best you can
    do the best that you can do
That’s all anyone has a right
    to expect from me or you
If at the end of the day you reflect
    and know you have done your best
You can lie down to sleep with a conscience that’s clear
    and a soul that isn’t stressed 


Thanks for stopping by! You honor me with your time.

I hope you enjoy your sojourn ‘off the beaten path.’

Stay as long as you like.

When you leave, no matter what else you do,

‘Live the story you want to tell.’

And come back soon!
