from the couch………….

Since my new friend Influenza introduced me to her friend Pneumonia about a week ago, I’ve had to spend way too much time in the house and on my comfy couch.  I’ve read at least 10 books and had time to do about three different meditations a day.  Since we haven’t been able to enjoy ourContinue reading “from the couch………….”
