What do you surf?

No Bodhi, not that kind of surfing! (Though my goodness I loved the original Point Break!) I’m talking about the world-wide web. The internet. You know, that thing most of us started using in the mid to late ’90s? Think about how strange that sounds. The web is about as much a part of our […]

Four Seasons

No…….not that……this post is¬†literally¬†about these.….. This week we observed the annual Spring equinox. Granted, where I live you wouldn’t know it’s Spring, but nonetheless the calendar says it is.
