It's been awhile... Today I drive to Houston (in the hatchback so I can lay flat) so tomorrow I can fly to Durham, NC. Friday will be my much anticipated visit with Dr. Grey at Duke Medical Center. This is my affirmation for the trip. Traveling alone. Trusting in the helpfulness of strangers along the… Continue reading Farewell Love Letter
