It is Time

~ Trigger Alert ~   I have never feared death. But yet I fear change. I feel the pain of loss and mourn those who have passed. Some I wish were still here.  Was it really their time to go? Death, our attitudes to it, well, that's a curious thing.  We like to pretend in... Continue Reading →
