A thought...

“There is something frightful in the way in which not only characteristic qualities, but particular manifestations of them, are repeated from generation to generation.”
       -- Oliver Wendell Holmes
I saw this quote and immediately thought of Never Scared.  I’m deep in edits right now, but life kind of gets in the way.  What I think I know, I don’t.  And what I think I don’t know, I do. 
Never Scared, at its core, is about a generational struggle:  a struggle to turn away from a legacy of crime, murder, and mayhem.  Parents should be cautious of negative qualities that could be passed on to our children.  It could be something as simple as how you see your glass:  is it half empty or half full?  Or it could be something as complicated as how you view your relationships with men/women.  Either way, it’s something to be aware of as we go through our daily lives.


  1. I completely agree--this quote is spot on. I always swore I would never grow up to be my mother, yet some of her characteristics (and not always the warm, fuzzy ones) have this tendency to just pop out of nowhere, unconsciously absorbed over the years. It's important to realize that even subtle things are picked up by those around you.

  2. You're so right. I always said I didn't want to be like my mother. But, I am in so many ways.
