It has been a while…

Bismillah It has been a while. A really long while.  What happened? I wish I have a solid answer for that – but I don’t. There is simply isn’t any simplistic answer. Sigh. I have missed writing. Truly do.  I guess this is me… trying to pick up the pieces again. Hey, I’m back! It might take me […]
