Then, we got beaten down, became frail andContinue reading “When we were on fire “
I’m your main boy, thick and thin The check marks by the tasks will make it all go away. Left unchecked, the mundane details in the quest for perfection will nag and divert from the true mission at hand. To live the life worth living not just a life with nothing better to do, existenceContinue reading “Making up for lost time”
