I went to the wolf sanctuary and yes pet a wolf. He stared at me so I sat down and stared him in the eyes as paced back and forth, then he settled only for a moment to sit. He looked into my heart and could see I was troubled, tantalizing moment I must say, He peed on a tree I got up and hugged a tree.

clean up the shattered pieces of yesterdays life ,
don't cry about them,
just move on ,
life is, how you take it,
like a movie,
move onto the next sce...
