Drive? Drive.

Hello, you!   It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Big, big thank you to every single one of you who have asked when I’m writing my next post, you truly have made my day by doing that and you’re the reason I started typing this.

I can tell you now, you more than likely won’t feel like it, the thought of moving with enthusiasm and energy might make you wince, but do it. Even if it’s just for one song.
