At last! I visit a Mr. Olive.

The Catalyst

Over the past few years I believe I have come 2 grips with a few decisions. By far I am not a willing participant in being the catalyst, but I am realizing that sometimes being the catalyst is exactly what your position is to be.

Imagine being born only to be put in situations that are uncomfortable and traumatizing in order for mankind to function.
