Earth Is A Battlefield

My hiatus is over – look for an important post in the next couple days.  In the meantime, I want to call your attention to a project – a message, really – that has been taking up a lot of  my time and is the subject of my next book (whose working title is “The […]

One Month,~3500 Miles…
