Miscellaneous, Thoughts & Musings

A quiet morning

As the sky begins to lighten, I think about the way the last half of 2016 has gone for many of us. And I think about myself, too.

Memory Lane and New Paths

Now that the issue with Brianna's school has been settled, it's time to focus again on my plans as well as work on a few projects I have going. One of those projects is a story of my childhood that I intend to share with my dad since he didn't know me while I was… Continue reading Memory Lane and New Paths
