A Loss of Words

I did it.  I wrote the most soulful, harrowing, genuine, clarity-filled post I had ever written.  And then I lost it.  As we prepared for our upcoming anniversary trip down here to Tulum, Mexico (where I sit at this very moment, absorbed in a tropical beach-dream come true), I had been planning to write this … More A Loss of Words
