The only difference

All my life I've been haunted by the fear of poverty.

Shortly after I flunked out of university I saw a busker in the street playing a violin. I remember thinking to myself, "The only difference between him and me is that I can't play the violin."

Fear made me desparate. When I started my first business a few years later I would have killed anyone who got in my way.

    Ambitious young pols blog it out on the Net
    Letters from lawyers are flying in a controversy pitting some of Montana's young and ambitious political operatives from both parties against each other.
    Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and hip hop lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about hip hop lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite hip hop lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!

  2. Yeah...I can see what you mean. I think. Your first paragraph in particular has got me thinking.

    I'm really glad you're getting so much pleasure out of hip hop lyrics. I've had trouble with my hip for a few years now and it's always heartening to hear from somebody who's refused to let it get them down. Keep on hopping!
