I needed to attend to my mental … Continue reading What I learned being Facebook free.

Easter.

Easter is a time for reflection. And a time of hope. Easter nowadays is consumed with winning the wallets of people, the passion of children, and deteriorating health according to the volume of chocolate on display all around.
