TNFro Is Reading…Choosing to Live, Choosing to Drink Wine, and Choosing to Read Myself Happy!

Now is not a time for rhetoric and alternative facts. Now is the time to be at peace and anxiety reduction and living. Changing my routine is a good thing because I am discovering really cool things to read like the New Yorker, Sophie Kinsella’s work, My Not so perfect life, Wine Pairings with great shows and listening to great Jazz from The Duke. I am choosing to live creatively and reducing the angst, join me in this episode after I lead you through a mid day stretch in the next segment.
