Between the compulsive checking of social media and forwarding of funny memes and gifs I find it hard to focus on […]
Oops. I started writing this post way back in July when the summer was stretched out in front of me. And now it’s almost over. But not quite. The days are still long and if you try really hard it’s possible to channel that summery vibe. Especially if you step outside and feel the heat […]
