Why I’m At Home on the Road

Why I’m At Home on the Road

In the past year: I sold my house on the river and moved into an apartment 1/4 it's size. Sold almost everything I owned, except the basics that would fit in said apartment. Saw my youngest through his first year of university. Said a sad goodbye to my 13 year old, four legged friend, Caesar.
