If you´re reading this (a miracle in itself) welcome to my very tiny corner of a large mad world! I encourage you to keep on thinking, keep on asking, and keep on laughing... "The future depends entirely on what each of us does every day; a movement is only people moving." – (Gloria Steinham)

  • Movember & MENtal Health

    Now that it’s Movember we’re raising awareness for men’s health. A very worthy cause.

  • My Town Needs Help
