New Beginnings

I am embarrassed. As I write this, I am thinking about who might read this. I am embarrassed to think that my father, certain friends, people in my life might read this. Now or in the future.    But I write it anyway.    This morning is day one of another challenge. It’s weigh in…

Day 30: The Journey
