New Year, New Girth, New Trunk

Resolutions are not my thing. But I am constantly hitting the refresh button on various aspects of my life. While 2021 just feels like an extension of the endlessly jacked up timeline know as The Ides of March MMXX, it hasn't stopped me from extensively weeding my closet, getting a new tack trunk, and tracking...

That’s a Lot of Snow

Rocks Eat Horses
