"I'm tired," Mark said as he walked through our front door. He didn't have to say anything, I knew already by his uneven gate and his stooped shoulders. He was beyond tired. I turned the stove off and walked to the entry way to help him to his chair. It had been a long week and he needed to rest. Tired....

Among the most interesting things we learned were from instructional videos from the Harvard University. I found it amusing to learn that there is an entire department at Harvard devoted to studying sexual behaviors…Continue
