I’ve been waiting for a breakthrough. I’ve felt uninspired for the past couple of weeks.  Beginning-of-the-semester crazy has settled and I’ve started cruising at work, but things just haven’t felt right.  Among the multitude of things tugging at my attention, the 11-month mark of Katie’s passing is just days away–meaning that the one year mark will […]
