Journaling Topics for Your Writing Enjoyment
Or…The Dragon gets distracted easily by wildlife

Working from home has many advantages. And there's one bizarre disadvantage for me. My den, which faces this well-planted common ground among the condos where I rent, has four very tall glass windows that are about a foot off the ground.
