Today I’m Feeling Old

Today I’m Feeling Old By Josh Magill Today I’m feeling old. Not the kind of old where my body is breaking down, but the old that has me looking backwards, looking over the years wondering if I’ve done anything worthwhile. The old that isn’t old but you think you are. Maybe that’s, as they say, […]

He’d hand-painted every part of his tiny town; each part of it resembled our city of Hamburg, its […]
