Still Shining

I don’t know about you, but life has been a little weird in these parts lately. My fondness for FaceTime and hikes through the trails in my neighbourhood has increased exponentially. That’s not saying much considering since the invention of Apple’s video messaging service I have only used it a handful of times. Lately it […]
