…except that I’m not capable of shutting-up. (But I love the idea -in theory- of being able to “write” a post every Wednesday that doesn’t necessarily require words). Today’s (hypothetical) wordless Wednesday post is brought to you courtesy of a debate my good friend, April & I are having over on a post I wrote […]
