the Weekly Town Crier

London's Town Crier copyYeah, I know how you feel. Man, sometimes it just feels like it’s in the water or something. Like fluoride.

But then other times it just doesn’t seem like it’s there. You try everything you know, you try to break old habits and find new breath. But it just doesn’t seem like it’s enough.

And then there are the so-so times. How are you? Así, Así, you know. Doing OK but not much more or less than that.

Wherever you find yourself along the spectrum, a good day to you, friend. Welcome to the Weekly Town Crier, where I find, collect and distribute links of varying degrees of interest.
