Falling In Love..

I have fallen in love. I have fallen in love with the streets of a city, the buildings that create stories, the people who pass by, the ocean as it kisses the sand hello, and the moon as it pulls her away. I have fallen in love many times, and because of this- I have…

“I need your list…” my mother threatens me again as if that will make me suddenly create a list in my mind of materialistic items I desire.  Sure, I could probably come up with a list of fashionable, practical, designer and beautiful things that would be nice to have. But, I don’t need any of it.…
