Final Ascent Series




Final Ascent

Final Ascent: An examination of thoughts and feelings about the final stretch of life, be it long or short

QUOTE: “I am a man seeking redemption, and I am a man running out of time.  This is not necessarily “Redemption” in any certain religious context, but in a Cosmic Karma thought.  It is a desire to fix or amend the negatives I have done.  I also resist the urge to blame these negatives on the mental and addictive issues of my life.”
