On Elephants

I’ve discovered I really like elephants over the last few years. I really like my elephant lamp (see really old post that I am too lazy to link to) and I have a bracelet and was thinking about elephants today while shopping deals on Amazon. It got me thinking about the animal itself just now. […]

The struggles

The saga of a pair of people who cannot get along, two children, and the court battles that ensue. I dont even know where to begin. A year and some months ago, communication broke down with the ex.
