New beginnings… er…

Okay. Well, that title sounds a little cliche but I don’t know how to say it better. I’ve been away for awhile doing other things. But now I am coming close to finishing up some big projects and my calendar is finally starting to clear a bit and I’m thinking, … [read]

A new year, a new life

Embrace what is

After a long, warm fall, winter has blind-sided us full blast. The wind is cold, the snow is falling and the temperatures are low. They say we should be preparing ourselves for a winter as we remember from childhood – endless snow drifts and endless cold. Bah. Round about the … [read]
