I am old enough to have made mistakes. Wise enough to have learned

discussion, thought, laughter and love. I'd like to share that with

On a typical Friday night I am
I do not have a typical Friday night. I might be working. I might
be dining with friends. I be out until 2 in the morning. I could be
asleep by 10:30.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I have things that I would prefer to admit privately.
