I stumbled across a wonderful blog this week, livingwrite.net by Shelly Aspenson. As I read more and more of her posts, the voice in my head was saying “Yes, yes, yes”, and not in a ‘When Harry Met Sally’ kinda way. Anyway, I am hooked on her writing and wanted to share her post “Zombie Virus-The Seven Levels Of Decay”. My favorite line from this is, “….to stagger around lifeless, emotionless, damaged, and numb is not acceptable for any human being.” Enjoy!
