When the volcano blows

I hear the rush of water from a distance growing louder and louder the closer I get. It’s exciting and peaceful at the same time. I arrive at the base of the falls and the rush of the water catches hold of me. I find myself lost in the movement and the frenzy yet IContinue reading “When the volcano blows”

Reflections

It’s inevitable. As much as I tell myself I am not going to do that thing at the end of the year and “reflect”… I think it is just human nature to take stock in ourselves every so often.
