Shall We Start Again?
It has been months since I've posted...and the last post talked about how it had been a while since I had posted. Life gets in the way for sure. Since I've been on a hiatus from this blog, I've read a few good books but never felt like writing about them. I...

Holiday Hiatus...
I haven't posted in a little while because I've been reading books that I haven't felt like talking much about. I just finished up both Black Elk Speaks by John G. Neihardt and In the Center of the Fire by James Wasserman. While both could be considered in ...
