After Banana

I will admit its been a struggle to find something to write about in the last week or so. Where could I go after Google and the banana bread? I couldn’t, could I? I threw myself into my writing. Got my Bluetooth headphones to work and listened to “Shady Solicitor” just one more time – […]
