Through Your Eyes

Someone invited me to a lecture this morning. She said I would enjoy it, because I am smart.

This one boasts that due to Ms. James infamous, erotic novels, “businesses focusing on sexuality are seeing a significant increase in sales.”  Well, there is good news.  I know I will sleep better tonight… Continue reading Where There is Passion; There is Hope
