“some assembly required”

I started this one a while ago. It had a bit of the new year’s resolution to it, more I’ve got to do something than knowing the direction. Things have changed along the way, mainly seeing a counsellor, which is helping. If the pieces of the model were choices that could be made, the notebook […]
