We’re coming up on the two year anniversary of losing Sir Terry Pratchett (March 12, 2015), so I thought it would be a good time to revisit this post I wrote a short later. I just checked, and the code…

Revisiting Frozen – an old post about my old friend depression

Frozen, old friend depression

I was talking to someone recently about my old friend depression, and was reminded of this post. Funny thing – when I went looking for it, I realized I’d written it at the end of February 2011. Something about this…

Revisiting Monday Love – an anecdote, a graphic, and a quote

MM – Revisiting Buttprints in the sand

I found this post from January 15th, 2016, and felt like revisiting Buttprints in the sand today. *grin* It’s been a hell of a week. I swear, it’s like George R. R. Martin and Joss Whedon decided to write the…
