PONDERING

Humanity Man – Summer

Why, hello there, my fellow zombie. I can’t thank you enough for deciding to join us here again. I hope and trust all is well with you. Actually, I do more than assume all is well... 



Alternatives to Fear

Two weeks ago I was with my mom when she got the news the cancer was back. Just eight months ago we were ecstatic to hear her body was cancer free. Last year was a tough year on all...
