Last Hooray of 2018

It’s the last day of 2018. I am excited and scared of being present for another 365 days done and over with, and of the anticipation of all the happiness and pain that may follow into 2019.

Most of my experience with seeing firework displays is from television broadcasts. Fireworks bring to mind some holidays where they are used as a…… Continue reading Fireworks!
