Operation Rising Phoenix

So, I probably should have explained WHY I wanted to share this journey with you.  (Damn concussion!)  I’m not that person who loves to be the center of attention.  Actually, I’m the exact opposite.  I’m that introvert who even on a good day needs to have a good friend with me to walk into a …
