So I have decided (as you can see in the last couple of posts) to start going through some of my notes from this year as well as to start reading a little more.

Something I have been working on in the past and yet I have still not mastered. Yet it comes up again because the need presents itself in this time of farewells. So this week I have made it my goal to be honest where words need to...
