I realize that it has been almost a year since the last update here at rise up buffalo.  To my readers, I am truly sorry.  Life has become chock full of things to be done and this web journal had to be put on the back burner for a bit.  I should have mentioned that, […]

Sometimes I wonder if my current state is merely a dream and that someday soon I will wake up to a different reality.
