That’s my five year old grandson last Halloween, as Edward Scissorhands. It appears the crazy hair up top was cropped, darn it. Continue reading
I hear those two words a lot. I have a very short attention span. I get lost in thought, so being “present” can be a challenge for me. There’s a little world inside my head, and I need to limit the amount of time I spend there. It’s my private little dwelling space, and that’s what I do there… Continue reading
I know this one is a bit weird, but I love tree trunks and sticks. I used to live in the sticks. Not these particular sticks, but in a mountain town with a population of about 3,000.
