Too many hearts have been broken since then though I shut my eyes to deny the hurt... but now I keep my eyes, ears and soul unclosed... to learn and share my experiences with all who're willing to listen to a poor boy who knows a thing or two about being broken... Two novel ideas are works in progress, so hopefully there'll be much more to share in the not too distant future...

I vote for 'THE TREEHOUSE' for its heartfelt poignancy. It touches the heart and has you wish that such a tragedy never happens to anyone ever again.
