Week in Review 1/26/15
I did a bit of paper work last week, finishing up my job as warden of the vestry and starting to work on taxes. I knew I sat too long; I felt it in my back and in my TMJ. This week, I am more conscious of how long I sit. I didn't like the pai... Read more

Too Much Reflecting Time?
I always tend to do a lot of reflecting at the end of a year and the beginning of another. Society tends to lead us that way with the talk of resolutions, etc. I have decided to do a few things differently this year and am hoping it works.
