Day 97

For the majority of my conscious life, I’ve chased the idea of close friendship, coming close to execution of said idea but almost always foiled by that pesky thing called distance. One of the greatest drawbacks to homeschooling can be the lack of a subset of similar-aged little people to select from as friends. As…

Day 96

Today I’m grateful for my body. I’ve never been naturally skinny or super fit but through a combination of occasional exercise and a decent diet, I’ve skirted through the majority of my life at a relatively constant weight.

This quality has led to a pretty free…
