Enveloping clouds, across stretched miles – unseen landmarks and draped blue skies. Tired of staring into the smothering gray.

Dreams Do Come True

“There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.” ― Homer, The Odyssey I am going to share a secret about me, that is known only to those close to me. Even those who know this side of me, have probably forgotten, because it is something I rarely discuss. My …
