We swing from lack of
Parlay to way too much talk
Blessing or a curse?

  1. I’m torn between blessing and curse. Obvious reasons suggest detriment in too much, for reasons that are way too obvious to recount. But, and it’s a huge but, I could never negate he value of of open communication…no matter how difficult it may be to be engage in truths we woud rather not encounter! Weans. Honesty. Progress.
