Endings and Beginnings

October 21, 2017 . . . that was the last time I posted anything of substance.  I posted a random poem in January, but other than that, nothing since last October.  Maybe I've had nothing to say.  Maybe I've had too much to say.  Maybe I didn't know how to say whatever it was that … Continue reading Endings and Beginnings
