Your Story

so lately i have an odd need. to hear peoples stories. the story they feel defines them. the story of who they are and how they feel about them selves. and sadly i have had no takers. no one seems to want to connect on such a personal level. maybe it is my need for that human connection i have denied myself for so long. maybe because my own story has hit a long dry spell.

if you feel you have a story for me please. send it to I will greatly appreciate it.
