SO here’s a picture to inspire you to never give up. See? Now this bird can’t swallow him! 😂 Now, we’re alive, we’re breathing. So let’s calm down and think…

    Liebster Award

    A long time ago a good blogger friend nominated me for this award.

    What strange milestone

So I was kind of waiting for what kind of milestone WordPress will notify me next. I never expected such a strange number. I won’t question it if it’s a round number but 1337 likes? I wonder if…

Today, I was searching Zhangye because Perfectly Imperfect, my latest WIP includes traveling to China. And I type in the city name, viewed some beautiful photo and land information… an…
