I was feeling a need to take a short break from blogging and then I got sick for almost 3 days... so I'm trying to recover from that and take care of things on the home front. I'll be taking the rest of the week off from writing. Thank you to everyone who has been … Continue reading Taking a brief break

Eric Church wrote a song afterwards with haunting lyrics asking, "Why … Continue reading The Therapeutic Value of Art and Music
I've been quiet on here. The quiet will probably shatter pretty soon. I have a lot to say, and I think I'm just about ready to start saying some of it. I am my own special kind of crazy. And for the first time in a long time, I'm totally cool with it. Crazy is … Continue reading Coming soon…
It's been over a year since I've been blogging and it feels a little awkward jumping back in. Especially with a brand new blog.
