The Greatest Show On Earth

There is a circus in my head. The merry-go-round music seeps inside the tent, getting louder with every passing moment. I can hear the vendors selling peanuts and cotton candy. I can smell the animals and the variety of food. And then I hear him, the Master of Ceremonies. He stands in the middle of... Continue Reading →

From Within The Stacks

I’ve challenged myself to write every day in April and post to my blog. It’s a big challenge for me as evidenced by the lack of posts to this site. I’m not exactly sure why I can’t write every day - I love to write. There is always the excuse of being too busy, not... Continue Reading →
