What Do I Believe?


What drives me to make the choices I do? Where do I stand on the issues? In the past few months, my life has been turned on its head mostly because of choices I’ve made. I want to learn from those choices, but I think it’s more than looking at the results and trying to […]

Processing The Process


For the last couple weeks I haven’t had work or a properly working car, so I’ve had a lot of time at home, alone.
