An Ode to Amberwood

  We're moving! But only to another duplex in our same city! (Lol at the use of "city" here. IYKYK) In July, we found out that our landlord needed to raise the rent of our current place.

They probably feel: Tired. Disrespected. Ignored. Like their time and efforts aren't valued. Last week, I felt so heavy and so grieved. This week, though, the rage is simmering just below the surface. (This is the feeling rotation I've been on for the past month.) I want to talk about the vaccine. Two shots and a booster. To protect myself and others - ba
