Green Ladies

I’m well aware of the fact that I can be the best person you will ever know – or the worst. Behind every abrasive woman, you will find a slew of stories; of living through something and coming out on the other side…still breathing.

These women might be the Shreks of life: To get to the core of them, you have to peel back the layers. But once you do, the worth of their love, in particular, is insurmountable. For friends, for lovers. These women are the most loyal, honest and appreciative people you may ever know. Or the worst: Life has taught them defense...and well.

In love, the time and patience it takes to reach the true heart of a woman who has lived life is a test; but the reward is unlikely to be imagined by its conqueror. Until he peels her back - gently.
