I have considered deleting my previous post several times since writing it, partly because it’s so personal, and partly because it’s something I’d like to move past.

Temperatures in the single digits are uncommon for … More Winter Beauty
Lake Remembrance last week. It was a beautiful, mild day, perfect for a walk on the trail.
