Even though we weren’t comfortable, we really had to get along with each other. Given how much things have changed in our living situation with me all over the place at all times, it felt right to connect.
I am headed to Durango with BF for a few days. We are stopping in Grand Junction to have lunch with my dear Marcia whose health has taken a turn for the worse. I’m not ready to talk about it yet but suffice to say I will be spending as much time with her as […]
