"Until you have lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is. " 
~ Margaret Mitchell

Pleased be Advised:

If you are in my life, encounter me in life by chance, fate or even by destiny, there is a great likelihood, you will become a topic of choice, written about or referred to in a story of mine at some time or another. (This includes family, friends, neighbors, social media friends & contacts AND the World at large.)

If you don't want to be written about, avoid me like the plague.

If you choose to be in my life, be nice so I will have nice things to write about.
