We are unstoppable 

So look at what I found today:  I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much.  Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable

There have been challenges since April like … Continue reading Two years and a half

I thought it might have been an Absence Seizure, also … Continue reading Trying to understand those episodes

Music can change your brain 

The way music affects the brain has been very interesting to me since the moment I realize music helped me concentrate.
