Home is Where the Happy Is

  Some say home is where the heart is, for some it’s where the art is, or maybe it’s where you find peace or joy or soul. Or all of the above. Or maybe not. Maybe it’s only a place to drop in before heading off on the next great adventure. Maybe your home feels too small or too blah or too cold or too old, or not old enough, or just not-quite-right. But, regardless, I do hope it gives you some sanctuary and respite. I hope it’s a...

That Sense of Freedom

Ok, its 2016 and, as usual, my brain has been rattling on over the roads of last year as a a way of clearing out for what is happening this year.
