Fly or Die…

My writing sucks lately…but it’s time I start working at it again. I miss it, and I miss all of you.  (Are you still out there?) So I’m kicking myself out of the nest I’ve built over the past several years…ready or not…like it or not…talent or not.     Fly or die. Seems like that should be […]
