There goes the sun; a tale about Home

Before you move forward, you’ve gotta remember where you’ve been and so today, we’re coming to you from home. The home my parents built for themselves 31 years ago, in the complex I’ve lived in for at least 28 of my nearly 30 years. Antes de seguir adelante, tienes que recordar dónde has estado y…

Hendrix Ivy

Happy Friday everyone! Today on the blog we’ve got our youngest feature MyXXFLY babe to date, and she is most literally a babe. Meet 364 day old Hendrix Ivy!

An Open Face Along the Straits of Fear

This week in story time, like a sailor at sea, a survivor of flight 815, or the other sock, we are lost. Or rather, I am. Maybe the state of limbo in my life, and the lives of my loved ones is weighing on me, maybe I’ve got too much restless energy that’s gumming up the works, or maybe times…

Art (R)Evolution

  Art: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination… producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
