Flap those wings, darlings.

My son is travelling to Asia today. He’s not going alone—as usual  he travels with his girlfriend—a young woman I absolutely adore. Sigh. I’m not happy about their choice of destination, because they’re heading to a place where the earth keeps rumbling. I’m afraid … Continue reading
