What road will you travel down today?
Tuesday, March 23, 2010      6 comments

The road that is well-worn and known? or The road of adventure, excitement, and the unknowns that keep the Spark ignited? I actually missed this question yesterday because I did most of my Sparking early in the day. But I'd like to answer ... Read more
