Life is beautiful
Miss me? I missed you! I have been on an unexpected roundabout vacation. You know how I love history — but I nearly was history.
Last month I was struck with a terrible illness, caused by taking a sample pill of something new from the doctor. It literally knocked a hole in my stomach, causing me to nearly bleed to death.
