Barcelona Terror Attack

I wasn't going to say anything about this because it should be obvious what I think. People that kill for their race or religion are misguided, stupid and morally bankrupt. If there is a reason for this life that we live, it has to be to treat each other well…

Design Decisions

Here it is. A new site design. It's Wordpress and I have no idea how to use Wordpress. I write novels and shoot photos. I even play with airplanes during my working hours. I don't design websites, but here it is. The reason this site exists is to help the…
