Morning Time

Good morning! It is 5:08 AM on a Monday morning. I do not know what the world looks like today as I am sitting on my bed in my darkened, cozy room, but I am assuming it is still there, and knowing Worcester, I feel confident suggesting that there is a significant chance it is…

A Great Big Sigh of Relief
