A Beautiful Horse Named Reese
We live in hectic times, and sometimes it feels like we are always running somewhere, unable to slow down and do anything for ourselves. According to statistics, over 34 per cent of Canadians feel trapped in their daily routine, and many of them describe themselves as workaholics.
