Ya Get What Ya Get

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and reached out to a friend via text to check to see if he had finished reading the most recent book I finished.

The Fires That Drive Us

           There are topics that I come to time and again because I feel like we need to hear some things more than once. We need that sort of a mantra that keeps us going.

Release it to the world. Blog it. Post it. Print it. Press it. Release… Continue reading Be Bold, As They Say…
