Transmitting the last Ruckin' of the old year. When you really think about it, aren't we all just a work in progress? We're never a finished project, that is unless we're dead. We're never truly done with our work, because the next work awaits.

According to the calendar it’s officially been autumn for over a week now, and this past week the weather has reacted accordingly with milder days and cooler nights. Born in late September, I am effectively a child of the Fall. And I’ve always had a strained relationship with the final full season of the calendar … Continue reading Ruckin’ With You | 10.2.16 | Autumn Descends
