I’m getting back to my roots. It’s time for more darkness, more shadows, and more end-of-the-universe type books. It’s my … Continue reading

Skull Buckets and Big Old Bucket Lists

SkullBuck

Ages ago, I published my personal mega-bucket list. It included 50 things I wanted to do before I die. Some were realistic. Others…not so much.
