An ode to Jill Scott

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus with the writing. I’ll admit, I wasnt being super positive either. I want to do a separate post on court adventures so I wont get into that right now but it was brutal and I’m recovering. No better way to recover from some abysmal gloom like that […]
