Uncontrollably ME

Strong like bourbon, sweet like tea



Returning to the beat of my heart on the AT.

  The Appalachian Trail. It has survived.  It gave me the strength to as well.  Saving me in the thick of it, encouraging me when I returned to it.  It is a constant. Reflecting back on all of the trips… Continue Reading →
