One thought on “As My Pen Gently Weeps

  1. Thanks Karen for your Thoughts!
    Of course, I never take things personal, and Trey was very honest about his thoughts.

You can label addiction with any WORD, but it is about any *THING* in your Life that interrupts, or interferes your Daily Living, can be an addiction. Drugs, Gambling, Alcohol, Food, Porn,…….and the list goes on. *Catherine* 🙂 🙂
