Finally

  Today my doors and windows are open, I’ve shut off the AC and am currently watching an incredible Autumn breeze float through the still green-leaved trees. It’s only 68 degrees; maybe Fall has finally arrived. The time between September and November contains my favorite time of year, in the Northern Hemisphere anyway.

The year will soon get a new name, but after that, life returns to normal. The focus is taken off of a life perfectly wrapped in…… Continue reading Life Legos
