The Leaf And The Wind 9:17:2020

The Straw That Broke The Camels Back 7/9/2020

Pain shared is pain halved, it's cool to listen, but at times, we have to limit the amount of what we hear and bare to take care of our precious self. This was inspired after listening to a friend say, "I can't take one more thing, not one!" As I…

An Old Forgotten Photo ~ by Katrina Curtiss 7/8/2020
