I’m joining in on Summer Fest again this year, but I can hardly believe it’s summer. In some ways, it seems like I just moved back to Fresno, but as the temperatures recently started up into the hundreds, I had flashbacks to last year and realized that this is my second summer here. I’ve been back here, in the place where I grew up, for more than a year. Well, it’s definitely starting to feel like home again and I’m happy to be here. Continue reading →
