Day 207 – Home away from home

I left home a month ago.  Today I went furniture shopping and piece by piece my new house is becoming a home.  The introvert in me can't wait to give my things a space. Clear out my desk, so I can finally sit down, draw and write.  The artist in me gets itchy fingers from... Continue Reading →
