When there are no babbles

The below was composed yesterday, but inadvertently not posted.  Babbles HAVE returned, but slowly and not so gracefully. Yesterday I was struggling to write.  I was overcome with emotions and thoughts.  However, when it came to placing them on paper, it just wasn’t working.  I was off, just not in the right place to write. … Continue reading When there are no babbles
