Grass Eater

I can’t eat another piece of meat, red meat in particular. And no I’m not being sexual at all. I live amongst carnivores and I swear to God I ate an entire cow and at least half a lamb over the holiday season. I can’t eat anymore for awhile. So I’m going on a ‘detox’Continue reading “Grass Eater”

When there is a long journey ahead, usually even small changes will garner early rewards. I’ve been at thisContinue reading “The Point Spread”
