As We Walk

Do you ever feel like the man in this photo? I sure do. I woke up to this song running through my head. As we walk, there so many times when we cannot see where we’re going, or what’s ahead. I’m alive, even though a part of me has died. I know I’m not the only…

No Lessons Tonight

What If The Game Won’t Win?

I’ve developed a habit of playing Solitaire on my phone every day via the app’s Daily Challenge.  As you can see, I’m doing pretty well, with an almost perfect record..ALMOST.  I’m having a great deal of trouble winning the Challenge of October 17th. No matter what moves I make, the game won’t win.  I continue…
