  • Christ

    This is not a swear, no name in vain, or an exclamation. Christ is my life model, the measuring stick of my shortcoming.

  • Only So Many Days In The Sun

    Today the sun shined. Made some coffee, made breakfast, made bubbles for the dogs to chase, waited for computer meetings, fought clan wars, cleaned the puppies. It’s only three pm.
