A Simple Thank You.
Because who doesn’t want to feel appreciated? . . . I read Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project several years ago, during an extremely challenging year of teaching high school English.

His lyrics are clever, profound, and at times, even whimsical. When I listen to his albums, I feel like I have known…
The Company You Keep.
