I am actively working on myself...and have been for some time because what I know to be true is that there is no end point to the work that I am doing. No final destination or goal that can be achieved where I get to sit back and say that I have accomplished what I … Continue reading On Particularly Rough Days…
Call Valentine's Day whatever you like, but I have to be honest that I like a little bit of romance...
