The Guilt Trip
Most of us have secrets; things from our past which might shame us, or scare us, or possibly even haunt us. We try our best to hide them, to forget them, or ignore them, but they are always there, just waiting for precisely the right moment to rear their ugly heads and return to our consciousness.
The Life of Bryan
The Life of Bryan: as told to Mark Peters 2013 Around 2013 I met a young man through an online forum after he had messaged me. His name was Bryan, he had recently turned eighteen, was about to finish high school and he lived in a small town not too far from where I was living.
Their Own Words – A Better Man (Part Four)
When I first sat down to compile my memories of Craig into this story I really had no idea where this journey was going to take me. I did mention previously that he had once asked if I was going to write a book about him and I have actually been thinking about that lately. Maybe I should write a complete novel that is based on his life? There certainly seems to be enough material for one and somehow I think it would be fitting. I can also think of quite a few young actors that would be excellent choices to play him in the movie version of his life! :)
Their Own Words – A Better Man (Part Three)
Their Own Words – A Better Man (Part Three) I have to admit that I was shocked when Craig first told me of the direction his life took once he had left the shelter of the orphanage. What can you say to someone who has just told you they made a living by selling their body? Especially when that someone is someone you had been finding yourself attracted to. For a moment I was stunned, maybe even repulsed, but then I realised that I shouldn’t be one to judge. I wasn’t exactly an angel myself.
