I will admit as an only child I grew up envying those with siblings during tough times. I recently went through a few triggers of sorts and after I’ve been journaling I’ve decided to share a poem as I post these still photos I took of a few little ones on Melrose Ave. Continue reading “Let’s See Where This Goes”
