Sister Anne’s

Damn you Demiurge!
We are hoping for the gorgeous weather of Indian summer.  I really miss my old coffees shop/third world snack cafe.

When I first started this blog, I was feeling insecure about my own personal future and the future of the entire media industry.  Ten years has not changed that.  

We went on our first trip to the Grand Canyon that year and we lost someone who was significant to the life of our city...

We have lost much...
On another of our trips, I reminisced about my friend who also had passed away.
