Autumn Interlude

Here’s a quick blast from the past. Well, a year ago anyway. We’re getting a lot of wet and overcast days with a sunny break for a day or two, and it’s pumpkin time again. The ADHD medicine trial we did a year ago went nowhere, so although my son lives with attention challenges, they’re not remedied with medicine. Please enjoy the photos of one of my favorite times of year!

Life Is A Journey... Not A Guided Tour

It’s been quite a while, I know. Life has been… well, how can I put it? It’s been a lot of putting one foot in front of the other, with an occasional pause. And moving forward again.
