Where’s the line?

There's always been folk making jokes about terrible and tragic events. I've long assumed we all know someone like that - but maybe I'm just blessed.¬†Despite working hard to be conscious of my words, and doing my best to avoid causing hurt, I can't say that I'm politically correct at heart.

A little break

I've got a number of projects which are calling out for my undivided attention, so the time has come for me to take a little blogging break. Stay safe & well everyone. © Debra Carey, 2020
