Hey Love!…

I met my wife in a library, introduced to her by an English Teacher. That's oddly poetic to me, for a wannabe writer to meet the love of his life in such a way. If the me of today were to hop into a time machine and go back and visit the 16-year-old me of yesterday,... Continue Reading →
