Being a

    • November 28, 2018

    As a little girl, one of the magical things I loved about Christmas was Santa Claus. I loved the songs about him, and the movies, like “Miracle on 34th Street.” Every year, I willed myself to stay up until he came so I could catch a glimpse of him. Of course, I never did see

  • An Appreciation of The Jaded Eyed: Gerry Ayers0
