On the … Continue reading A Love Story I Could Finally Read

Eventually those February sunsets turn into spring sunsets. Then eventually spring sunsets turn into summer sunsets. This photo was taken off a pier close by. From this photo it kind of reminds of being in Los … Continue reading A Little Spring Sunset

It has taken me a while to call it by its current name because I have known it as another name that was way cooler…Let’s go to the Jake! Now I think people call it the Prog or Progressive.
