The Voice in My Head

Posted July 25th, 2011

Wow, it has been forever since I have been able to sit down and write this column. So much has transpired during that time; much has been good, but a lot has been sad. In one of my previous columns I mentioned cancer being part of my everyday life and gave the examples of one […]

Five People

Posted January 18th, 2011
