  • Unfamiliar Seasons - The summer of 2011 was one of the worse on record. It seems like everyone I know was dealing with sickness, divorce, or unemployment. We all had deal with heat and drought.

I never was much good at recording my personal stories. I’d get tangled around and around in the details and lost trying to pin point the exact mood.
