Every time I stop writing and get back to it, I make a promise that I’m going to keep up with it. And here we are, a solid two months since my last published piece.

Life Update: Where is home?
Lord knows a blog update has been long overdue. So many stories to share, things I want to write about and document, but sometimes life comes at you fast.
