A little bit about me

May 07 - thanks to everyone sending me messages, I've been fine, just been busy!  Lost my job, moved, quite a bit's been happening; so I'm hoping to be able to come back here but not sure how much I'll be around.  Hope everyone is doing well!!! 
Hugs, Mandy

About Me I have no house
I have no home
I have no place
To call my own.
Frustration is an avalanche pouring over me. Cold shards of reality bite into my brain, nerve endings on high alert, how to survive, what to do now.
Where do I belong in this world anyway?
A tiny place to claim as my own for a short while is what I search for. Simplicity suits me; I donít aspire to a wealth of land ownership.
Just something, somewhere, that cannot be taken from me while there is still breath on my lips.
