Mountain Top Moment

I'm sitting here, on top of a mountain, and I find myself to be in awe. First off, the fact that I, of my own volition, chose to climb a mountain in my spare time is a big deal. I am known to hate physical activity, but there was something in my soul that just … Continue reading Mountain Top Moment


Merely a Beginning

It has been a long several months. I never anticipated being home to be so hard. But there it is: Home is hard.

And I want to be prepared for that moment. I don't want to be surprised by the fact that … Continue reading An Ode to an Office
