Hidden in the Garden of Fools

Have you ever been Hidden in a Garden of Fools? I know I would like to be crawling around in there once again with all those mules Not as a fly on the wall Pinkerton small but, lost within a maze of green living breathing purple haze hedges because that doesn't matter what does is a grasshopper… Continue reading Hidden in the Garden of Fools
