Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

So, the Project 313 Post 31 that went live earlier has a flower photo and I mentioned that I photoshopped away some ugly detail. I had a few photos taken with the Note 8 and both showed the remnants of … Continue reading
