Sunshine after the Storm

Hurricanes are a fact of life in Florida. I’m used to it. So many humans ask me, “Why live there?” I live here because it’s home and the storms are not an every day occurrence.

Covid, other illnesses, surgeries, the big C word, lawyers, book sales, finances and teenagers with … Continue reading I’m over 2020
