Happy Place

I was asleep, and in my happy place. I’m not sure where that is, but it is a place where I finally relax. It is a place where everything is ok. Where there are no problems. I was there, and I was happy; until suddenly I was pounced on. I was literally pounced on byContinue reading “Happy Place”

Losing Weight Organically

First, right out of the gate I want you to know that I am not a doctor. I am not a chemist or a researcher. But, I do notice things, and I have an irritating habit of wanting to tell people the things that I notice. I want to tell you what I have experienced,Continue reading “Losing Weight Organically”
