When Science Needs Art

I've done well for the last month, approximately, of not getting bogged down in the tracking and temping and observing.

Sins of the Mothers

I grew up hearing how much I was like my mother. That I was the spitting image of her, I acted the same way, liked the same things, did everything just.like.her.

Exciting! Of course, we are also 'blessed' to live in... Continue Reading →
