Finding dignity and purpose on

Will Work for…Dignity.

Love and Hate I have this relationship. It’s one of those relationships they describe as love/hate. Sometimes I’m absolutely in complete and total love with her.

Eyes Wide Open

Off and Away Late last month, Kia and I were in Guatemala celebrating our 20th anniversary. We had an absolutely incredible time.
