PYHO- Inferiority Complex

Why yes, that's my coffee table, in the dining room.

Sometimes I get so frustrated by blogging.  Not the actual ACT- I love it.  I’ve been blogging for more than a decade now on one platform or another.  And for years and years, the majority of the blogs I read were private, invitation only and REAL. The people I blogged with- in that we read […]
