Where do I begin

Many people tell me that the stories I tell, that the life I live, the places I go, the things I do, are fascinating to hear about. I have been trying, unsuccessfully I would say, for many years to find my niche. I don’t feel like I have figured out how to convey my emotions, … Read More

Recently I heard from a friend that we own nothing: we are merely stewards of our possessions.  If you can’t properly care for something, pass it along to someone who can.  This was a profound statement for me to contemplate.
