A New Year

This morning Facebook reminded me of my blog post from a year ago today.  I was on my way to Texas to start a new chapter in life. This blog was going to blossom and thrive as each new day in a new life unfolded. And then it didn’t. I got homesick and depressed. Countless…

Pandemic Punctuation!

Diving headlong from the platforms of social media, texting, and email my thoughts and conversation flail as punctuation re-purposed as faces, hearts, and other embellishment look on.
