Today I deleted 15 numbers from my phone of persons who have transitioned on to no longer be living. This is something I have been hesitant to do since 2012. I wrote in a journal for several minutes and realized that I had an association of feeling as though erasing th...

Nope, this is not an episode of Fantasy Island. In fact it’s quite the opposite. There I was completely full of milk and with limited time going through an airport terminal thinking about how was I going to time this all where I could pump the milk and board the plane....

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from the ropes th...
