I am someone who creates meaning from happenings. It is what metfor10 is all about. I look for signs to point me in the right direction. Positive signs that remind me everything is going to be OK. I am also someone who creates meaning from the not-so-positive signs. The signs I have never written about. The […]

From Dark To Light
