Wise Words From Dr Seuss.

Stepping Out.

Stepping Out.

May 3, 2013

Today’s prompt is “Things that make you uncomfortable”. Being a blogger is somewhat of a security blanket for me. The safety of being on the other side of a omputer screen gives me the confidence to be myself. The written word comes far more naturally than when I open my mouth and try to talk. […]
