Visiting the Past!

Sorry for the blast from the past – while I am getting my DNS transfer set up, my (very) old Worpdress.com version of the Kat’s Cafe site will be visible for some viewers depending on how the DNS propagation goes.

Accepting a bit of Insanity

Depression: a misunderstood reality
From my “Moving Forward: The Early Years of Redefining Me”
