This has been extraordinarily upsetting to put it mildly.At any … Continue reading Plagiarism
I really am going to try my best to make this a short post - I really just wanted to get this idea down before it flew off into the vault of Beth.

I am sure I will write at least another post with this title. Maybe a book. But for now, all I will say is HOW MANY YEARS WILL IT TAKE TO FORGET YOU??I don't know. I'm not there yet. I wonder if I will ever be. *And all the obvious "you"s that could mean are … Continue reading How Many Years …
