We had been driving about three hours without a break- leaving us hot, sweaty and cramped. The car itself was an old tin can that made ominous sounds every time it- well, moved, really. Inside the car were the four of us, all with extremely different personalities and the static from the radio that couldn’t quite… More A Welsh Weekend
In my last post, I talked about my family’s trip to Tokyo, but I left out the part when we went to Disneyland. Why? Well, because it really deserved a post of its own!

Parkinson’s isn’t considered fatal, but now I have to acknowledge that my whole future must be constructed to revolve around my mother… More Diagnosis
