The Lewis becoming an adult thing

This is going to be hard to write without sounding jaded, or bitter, but I’m going to try. My nephew, Lewis, turned 18 recently. He’s Jane’s sister’s first-born, and I’ve known him all his life. I don’t know where to start with how I feel about my perspective on all …

600th post spectacular – Questions galore

Ok, so the numbers say that this will be post number 600. I feel like I want to do something special for it, and after having a little think, I remembered that I’m currently reading a book on my Nexus called “Be creative” by Infinite Ideas – it was free …
