My goal is Sing Sing Prison, one of America’s most famous prisons, and yes, it looks just like it does in all those prison movies –old and gritty.

Sing Sing is a maximum-security prison.

Leering over the proverbial “fence” of Facebook, Instagram, and other social media posts peddling idylllic bliss, and seeing gorgeous pictures of faraway places and perfectly groomed happy smiling faces, we get trapped.

With midwinter now behind us, we are starting to look forward to spring, which means spring cleaning!
