Experience

Friendship

Have you ever lost a friend but didn’t know why?  You just wake up one day and realize they are no longer in your life.  From a decision not of your making.  For no reason, from no incident, or misunderstanding, or fight; nothing you can recall.   Some time ago, two female friends vanished from […]

Confessions of a Bionic Wonder Woman In Two Parts

PART ONE August of last year, I assigned myself 12 Labors to be completed by March 1, 2018 for Emerald City Comicon in Seattle.

The idea came about my Freshman year of […]

Opening night (Friday, June 2) I saw Wonder Woman with my good friend Ann, whom I have known since grade school. She […]
