This entry is part 20 of 20 in the series Debut Author Lessons

We are all drawn to other people by common bounds. Prediabetes, type 1 and type 2 diabetes are such common bounds.

I know I've mentioned growing up on the farm without electricity, indoor plumbing, and on one farm, no running water into the house. The farm my parents bought, however, did have water coming into the house and into the washhouse. That meant Mama no longer had to carry bucket after bucket of wate... Read more of this blog post »

They run for the sake of running. They don’t [...
