The week after next, I will hopefully finish p... Read more

Working Through Depression
Lately I have been fighting my depression a little more than normal, since November, possibly October.
A lot of things have been going on, and I realize that while some of it might be weather related, a lot of it is honestly grief.
In Octobe... Read more
