bracing myself.

AND YOU SHOULD TOO! This is the not new look in the burbs: Brace yourselves people! This is me—em-bracing it. Making it happen. Working it. Living-it-up. It’s the scarf look with a medical edge to it. The clean lines and custom fit work on anyone. Recall that little back pain mishap? Well, it has found [...]

the wind blows.

It’s windy outside. And I have been feeling some of the blows. > Pow > Punch > Hard truth > Hard questions > Hard answers Looking up and around I wonder what to grab at first, or what things just to let fall where they may. Do I step in and help soften the landing? [...]
