I mentioned a few months ago that I found my business intuitive. Cue the law and order music. Duh, dum. This is my

So this Happened

I received the oddest email on March 31st of this year, which partly went. “… read your article on Medium and was very pleased with both your writing style and analysis.

Do YOU Believe?

How Well Do You Live In-Between?

I’ve been watching and thinking about several people in my circle. Specifically how they are navigating the in-between world. Y’know the place where we haven’t quite finished with one thing yet are taking tentative steps forward with that other thing? Like, my neighbour, just diagnosed with prostate cancer.
