Are You Ready for National Margarita Day?

I absolutely love days that are dedicated to drinking. And I’m not talking about days that you personally dedicate to drinking, but the ones that our thirsty world - "and the powers that be" - determine to be honorary and celebratory. On…

Writing Holds A Mirror To Your Inner Self…Babel’s David Henry Hwang
