Happiness Allowance 

 It’s difficult to trust things when they are good, isn’t it?  I find myself asking when the other shoe will drop quite often, and in order to protect myself from disappointment, I’ll allot myself a happiness allowance.  If I’m only so happy, I can only be so disappointed.  But why would you limit your ability…

It Takes Two

Can you be in a healthy relationship with someone who is not fully healed? The Lovers reversed suggests an imbalance. Some disharmony between the two. But I don’t think it is impossible.
