What Dreams May Come…

It seems my words may be coming back. I woke up crying from a dream I don’t remember and the first four lines of this in my head. After  ten continuing minutes, and ultimate uselessness in trying to go back to sleep, the grinding gears inside my head refused to shut up, so up I …

Throwback Thursday…On A Monday!!

Throwback Thursday…On A Monday!!

Apparently, I have a complete disregard for social rules as I am going to do something shocking. I am declaring it Throwback Thursday. I know, I know…it’s Monday.
