Summing Up February, and March Goals

March is coming in with mild weather and even a little bit of sunshine. To be honest, I was hoping for maybe a tiny bit more winter. I’m still edging toward being comfortable in my tent in the ice and snow. Well, by comfortable, what I mean is something more like “confident that I won’t

IWSG: One Photo

The awesome co-hosts for the The awesome co-hosts for the February 5 posting of the IWSG are Lee Lowery, Ronel Janse van Vuuren, Jennifer Hawes, Cathrina Constantine, and Tyrean Martinson!

The thing that came up during my recent Twitter surge… Well, the thing other than wedding dress porn. (You note the absence of a link.) Was the idea of symbols. Well, that’s what came up for me. What came up for a lot of people, apparently, was YOU’RE WRONG!!! I had raised the question of
