Light the Way

This month’s theme is Light the Way. I had to sit on on this theme for a bit because my natural inclination is to think “must write about a dark time where something or someone lit the way”. But, who’s really up for dramatic sad stories anymore these days when the entire world feels pretty dramatic lately. But, then I realized amidst trying to pick a person to lights my way and contemplating about talking about my dog, that it’s not necessarily something else that lights the way, it could simply be you. You can light your own way. And, […]

Some of us are just the weaker kind of humans. However, in all serious, […]
