A New Chapter, take 1

The Grateful Dead had once said “What a long strange trip it has been” and well I couldn’t agree with them more. It’s been almost 2 years since my last post and I don’t even know where to begin the reason for disappearing from something that really kept me grounded. Let’s just say I am…

Daily Prompt: Flangiprop
