“... as the moon lingers a moment over the bitterroots, before its descent into the invisible, my mind is filled with song. I find I am humming softly; not to the music, but something else; some place else; a place remembered; a field of grass where no one seemed to have been; except a deer; and the memory is strengthened by the feeling of you, dancing in my awkward arms.â€

Thank you, TokyoGirl for the following information:

I came across an excellent publication on grading types and severity of acne scarring, as well as the best treatment approach for each type of scarring, a few months ago.

The document is long at over 120 pages. If you join Scribd, you can download the pdf. It's a great read and resource for anyone hoping to treat their scars. I hope you find it as useful as I have. http://www.scribd.co.../Acne-and-Scars

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon
