Alone Time

Alone Time Sometimes, I write like this. About my day. Like Waking up to an empty apartment. Making a cup of coffee. And then Deciding I want hot chocolate instead. I love the apartment.

A Little Hope Goes A Long Way

We’ve heard the songs. We’ve read the poems. We’ve seen the posters. But when we say that we believe the children are the future, what exactly are we doing about it?
