From Whence One Came

It’s been a rough summer for me. There I said it. Writing hasn’t gone well. My garden was a colossal failure this year due to over saturation thanks to the near-Monsoon rain we had (now we’re in drought conditions, go figure). We had death in our family. And I have not spoken to my son …

#tagyou’reit or The Subtle Art of Co-Writing, Part I
