I wrote this last week, but didn’t have access to wifi at the time, so I didn’t post it. Circumstances. Then I chickened out, worried that I’d offend someone. Fear. So, here goes nothing.

I spent last week in Disneyland. Again, some of you might ask? Good powers of observation, my friends. I was just there in May. Because I love it there. It’s fun, beautiful and it makes me happy. I’ve noticed…

Hence, why you’ve seen few posts from me (“What do I want to say? It’s got to be really good and amazing and change lives and save kittens, and if I don’t write about exactly the best thing, then all the kittens will die and…
