Solitude

Ever want to run away? Maybe that’s too drastic. There are certainly times for all of us when we want to get away. Maybe to be  completely left alone, but for me usually I want to get away with just my two boys, Quinn and Marcus. We do alone, together, pretty well.

These trolls are allowed hate language in comments even on news sources
