HUMP it UP!

Hi everyone:

Lots of various life events have happened this week, some exciting and some challenging. Suffice to say, keeping a balance, and sometimes something as simple as remembering to breathe, goes a long way.

Here is some of the excitement:

1) My first piece at Fictionaut in months. And boy, I have missed this place:
