Misguided Mindset

By Regina Rowley | June 5, 2015

So much information out there, and educated awareness has been displacing my childhood and societal teachings. I have come to the computer today with the recent observation.

By Regina Rowley | May 2, 2015

Joggers Safety

By Regina Rowley | September 8, 2014

It always makes me sad to see joggers with ear buds.
