I’m struggling. But sometimes I’m not. Maybe that’s just the way we all are in life. I’m cleaning again. For the past two days, I’ve been cleaning out my office area. I found a bunch of my notebooks.

The other day I made a quick day trip to my old hometown of Fort Smith, Arkansas. I went with the most innocent of intentions. I had several friends who wanted some of the essential oil items that I make and sell; I was ready to get out of town for a day; one of… Read More Refuge
