“Rage” by Stephen King: A Meditation

By David Karp As the sun was slowly dipping down into the horizon, the sunlight slowly disappearing from the window I was sitting next to in the cafe, I closed a book that I was, at first, hesitant to read.

In Memory of/In Reflection

By David Karp “Change. How do you change yourself?….It’s easy to lose yourself or never find yourself. The older you get, the heavier that baggage becomes that you haven’t sorted through. So you run.

By David Karp Dear R- Leo’s getting big, and his prancing around our ranch on Christmastime is getting more and more destructive by the year. Still, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
