Dream Journaling & The Crash Report

For the past 16 months, I've been journaling my dreams. I've titled these writings; The Crash Report. Why would I do this? I cannot remember having an agenda for doing so.

Damages Part I [Spring 2019]

Stronger Together, Always

If you didn't already know, I've been divorced from my wife for many years. Six months ago, we stepped onto the road of reconciliation.

I frequently look to my wife for words of wisdom and … Continue reading Stronger Together, Always
