… anxious when it comes to earning money in a way that’s better than now.
Not news, really, although this time it came to me while walking Jay in his carriage Very Early this morning, dead-tired and wondering if I was ever going to get time enough to get some of the (other) successes I craved in life.… Read more
I had this feeling yesterday, after thinking much about what to do with my writing, that I’m also equally clueless with regard to my blogging. Since I’ve been blogging on and off from 2004-2017 this is not exactly something I admit lightly.
