Blonde On The Prairie: So, who really hates dandelions?

May 17, 2012

Not yet!” We really are born dying but I don’t think it is kosher for me to remind you of that. Nobody wants to hear or think about the impending news that they’re dying. Maybe that’s why we don’t ever acknowledge we’re dying until we get older or we get hit with a chronic, terminal disease. Maybe my own chronic pain and my own disease process has turned me into what I’ve become.
