First things first before I dive into the topic I'm about to address. I've been away from the blog for a while and, for that, I apologize. I had to step away from some things to allow myself to grow and heal from some things. Photo by Andre Furtado on This post is inspired... Continue Reading →

“Can you believe you can’t buy water in there for a dollar?” Photo by Luca Nardone on Yesterday I encountered a lady who was outside of a grocery store sitting on a walker holding a “homeless, please help,” sign.
