“Good-bye” has never been my favorite phrase in parting. I prefer a hearty “see you later!”.

I wish there was an app to generate blog titles. Plug in a few key words and out pops the perfect title! Most days giving posts a title is done-easy-over. Today I struggled with the post title. “Smoke, Mirrors, Defiance and Wizardry” was the first title that came to mind. A little much to biteContinue Reading
