Leaving the Left to Free the Right! almost…

When I moved to Oberlin, I was looking for something…peace, quiet, culture, life!  In almost 4 months here, I have found all of that.  I have given my left brain a chance to breathe while allowing my right brain to become more active.  Finding balance has been creative for me…and it took a turn for […]
