From IOS to Android: It’s Not Easy

December 2, 2013

Where Was I When JFK Died? In a State of Innocence

I’m Depressed

September 3, 2013

I’m depressed. You heard me. I’m depressed and I want to share it. I’m lucky I have the ability to write.   What? You say you would never have guessed? I seem like such an optimistic upbeat person? I am. The two are not mutually exclusive, and they don’t occur in my brain/body/mind at the same […]
