and the beat goes on
About jd:

My humor is a little bit of the macbre/sarcastic, but never intentially hurtful. Since childhood I watched my mother laugh at herself and others. If you fell, stubbed your toe or fell in a mud hole after stubbing your toe, she would be in stiches. She always had a quick wit, (which I inherited) and a tender heart for those who needed it. (me to) Death took her away from me,but there are many times I can hear her voice, or notice a reaction to something that came from her first. I am an accomplished pianist, vocalist and composer. Though I am no longer interested in the pursuit of world recognition for my God given talent, I do enjoy listening to others. I am an avid kitchen chef and baker. Food in the house always gives me a reason to invite those I love and hold in high regard, to come and let us break bread together. I do not like to be around people of negative nature or of a pessemistic attitude. Those type of individuals bring out the worst in me (be it on the net-or in person) I avoid these kinds of persons at all times, period! By nature I am an optimist. (no I'm not delusional) Things in my past at times were very very tough! But I was raised to believe that, "these things too shall pass." I am aware that sometimes you have to go through some tough stuff.  (life's great quest) Thanks be to God I'm still here! I watched a lot of people that I have loved be taken away tragically. I still have a lot of question as to the why? And the beat goes on.

"Happy to say something useful. Your question was a thoughtful and thought-provoking one."
Corrine. says:
"JD thanks for all of your compliments. I have a special place in my heart for those who have been harrassed by others due to unjustices. It is not right. A child shouldn't even have suicide even float in their minds let alone act upon it. Children go to school to learn and that should remain not to be intimidated by others. I feel so horrible for those families as well. Everyone no matter who you are is special and unique. They have a purpose and a place. I just wished these people will think about that before they do something so drastic. The minds must be so tormented they think there is no way out. Well thanks for all of your questions and the compassion. Take Care. "
