I know it's been awhile since I posted here.  But it's been one of those, life gets in the way, kind of years.  If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you'll know I was downsized from my job of ten years in… Continue reading Musing 11/5/18 ~ Follow the Rules!

Mini-Musing: 09/17/17 ~ It’s Hard to Let Go

With all the Musings, I’ve been writing for the past few weeks you would think this would be easier. I’m considering letting my work go. It took me five years to write my work mainly due to life throwing all types of crap at me and I’ve actually gotten some positive feedback not to mention… Continue reading Mini-Musing: 09/17/17 ~ It’s Hard to Let Go
