Before I start on the substance of this post, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for all the thoughtful and supportive comments on last week’s post. To be quite honest, I was floored by the responses. I had thought I was just posting another rambling, half-baked, barely edited and perhaps of… Continue reading Songs For A Rainy Day
It snowed on November 1st. My Colorado friends will be unmoved by this because I know it snowed earlier there.
