It’s been a long time since I last wrote a post…seven months and ten days ago to be exact. I have a million excuses and really no excuse to why I haven’t written. When I think back over the past seven months I feel like time just went too fast and too slow, which I … Continue reading Where Does All the Time Go?
So why are you so lucky to get another blog posting from me after oh so long? It’s hot as hell in Denver and I wanted an excuse to seek air conditioning and so I thought – Eureka!
