Where Harmony Reigns

Terror does not stop.  It never will.  In paradise, where everything is as it should be, and where harmony reigns, there is still the capacity for fear.  And when it is not expected, when fear sneaks up on those who have peace in their hearts, its bite is the most ferocious.

The second was to cling to every moment, scared to lose... Continue Reading →
