Booking It

I love to write.  I don't know what it is about it exactly.  I think I feel like I can communicate better that way.  More successfully, I guess I should say.  I'm much easier to understand on paper.  I can edit and re-edit until I convey the message I want the way I see or … Continue reading Booking It

Creativity

The most surprising thing I've found along my journey is my creativity.
