Dear PSVG patron or moreover Dear Family, 

How are you? Ah that’s good to hear, I’m proud of you. How am I? I am tired. I am exhausted and in need of that sweet freedom that comes in the form of laying my head down next to my beautiful wife and two dogs whom are currently curled up in one symbiotic comfort fort of love. I want to be a part of that snuggle fort so badly, but sadly that fort is like Walter Peyton and I am a hopeless Green Bay packer being evaded and left staring and wishing.  You see I am troubled. I would even go as far as to say, troubled with a capital T. A reference to a play I saw with my wonderful wife, but it makes more sense to me now then it did back then. To comprise (to undertake for those of you guessing and no I didn’t look it up. I will tell you the truth though, I looked it up because I wasn’t sure if it was a word and to my delight it was) the Trouble I currently feel in my heart.  Read More
