*it was kind of a wild year for me in all honesty…and as a writer this reflected a lot in my writings. I notice this year made me face some realities in a real world – which also made me take off the kid gloves…maybe the pain motivated me to not just sit idly by as something was being said. In the end, we all will answer for what we think and then do…sometimes we find grace and sometimes we don’t…and that’s as real is it gets.
