It begins with one step and so I started that walk.
Every night around the track.

Solid soles hitting the crushed gravel.
And so it goes with one step...I start the journey of discovery.

Finding insight in the heavens above; breathing in oxygen to cleanse the solid soul.
Challenges await...

I continue to walk!

Sharp as a whip the cougar studied her prey.
Alone he sat watching from the shadows.

His heart started racing...he knew he was hypnotized.
He watched her approach.

She could sense the tension.

Carefully, she stood next to him,
whilst sipping her MARTINI!

"Come here often, she asked"
