  Wednesday is the middle of the week.  It’s usually a day that feels difficult.  You’re somewhere in between.  Not at the beginning but not at the end. I’ve felt that way for a long time.  So much in the middle of this journey that I’m too far in to go back and yet still [...]

When I first moved here back in June, I was excited to find out that the elementary school bus came directly to the top of my street to pick up the children.  It’s so close I can see it from the bottom of the cul de sac where I live.  I thought this would be [...]
