It’s A Nondescript Alcove

Captain Q deliciously values his soul and the souls of others 😉 Not to mention he deftly points out both the contradictions and beauties of being published but also possessing a “secret alcove” where you can be terrible and feel gratified at knowing you won’t be judged.

The richest inheritance

This is so true. So true. So true.



If your parents didn’t love and understand each other, how are we to know what love looks like?

If the grown-ups know how to take care of each other, then the children who grow up in this environment will naturally know how to love, understand, and bring happiness to others.

The most precious inheritance that parents can give their children is their own happiness.

Our parents may be able to leave us money, houses, and land, but they may not be happy people.

If we have happy parents, we have received the richest inheritance of all.

Men love metaphors because they make them feel smart and sneaky, even when…
