Now you may be asking, as I did, what the heck is multipotentialite? Continue reading
I haven’t posted in a while because my focus has been on other things the past couple weeks. I have been working on a new story (more on that later), but what’s taken up most of my focus is a health and fitness challenge. Continue reading
Happy Summer Solstice!
Today, if you didn’t already know, is the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year for those of us living north of the equator. (So Happy Winter Solstice for anyone south of the equator.)
