I Finally Mowed the Grass

I did some much-needed yard work today. The first real mow always takes me forever to get done. I think it has something to do with my Seasonal Affective Disorder. It’s like I’m in such a funk that I always leave the house when it’s sunny so I can forget that when I go home […]

Buddha and a Broken Bathroom
