Success Is Self Defining by Ted Byrne

Currently unavailable for purchase

_"Ewwwwww…." She exhaled with a pleasure that made us shiver. It was more than Christmas ever brought her.

“I’m sorry.” wiping at a tear she raised it from its place. And we knew there’d be no more words… and that it was just exactly the gift that would mist her in dreams. This time… this time, how successful were we?

My friends, success is not measurable. Success is self defining.

Aging… Um…. Maturing. Still wondering what I’ll be when I grow up.
