I’m Listening

When it comes to love it’s never simple.   We have seen our heroines and heroes go through some difficult times in CounterClockwise.  Some have separated for an unspecified length of time.  Others have separated forever.  Yet others still have not yet come together as they should or could.  None of those situations are easy,…
