You should be…

Evidently there is something very wrong with me.  Because instead of having a loving, yet stern voice in my head telling me to get up off my arse and write, it sings to me….  “You should be dancin’ yeahhhh…”  Mmmm.  Nope.  Not even if I were gifted with the knees I had when this song was fresh, […]

Totally Did It…

A big shout out and thanks to the people who’ve reached out to see if I was OK.  I am.  As predicted I threw too many balls into the air, and this is the fallout of me trying to catch them all and get them going again.  At least my in boxes are no longer […]
