The Bird

Written by: Laraine Martin Nearly a decade ago, I trudged up the saddle of Mt. Massive on an early August morning.

The Evolution of a Person is the Evolution of a Decision

Logic vs. Emotion when decision making Written by: Linsey Warren Maybe I set myself up for this ‘confrontation’. Maybe it was a long-time building.
