No, I’m not talking about the thaw of the raging winter that’s thankfully past us. That is long gone. We are now in the midst of the type of unkind, sweltering heat that requires one to bring extra napkins on errands to Continue reading
Coming to you live from Tuesday night (at the time of this writing) and I’m stuck- yet again. I feel like I’ve hit the proverbial wall. Here’s an honest life update: Continue reading
Welcome to my series in which I spotlight one of my followers. I’ve always had a deep fascination with people: how they became who they are, the struggles they won, and the hard lessons they learned over time.
