  • Don’t let fear lie to you any longer

    Meet Buck Rock (see below). We got acquainted last summer. We’ll never be good friends though. See the steep stairs? I climbed those to the house on top of that rock. (I know, I know, whhhyyyy would anyone do that?) I climbed them with tears in my eyes… and on my cheeks. I was clenching […]
