Book Bugs Bite

Hello everyone. I’ve been gone… for a really, really long time. I had one helluva crazy August that included an intense one week medical course and then a three-state-seven-flights trip to the US and back home. And then two days later school.

I lift up your chains.

You lift up mine.

 

We cannot fly

but

together we can run.
