Call It a Grand Re-Opening

December 8, 2022
For the last 22 years, I’ve been a little busy. But I wasn’t busy doing what I thought I’d be doing. I thought I’d be working with consulting clients and creating classes just like always. You know, busy with the usual. But no. In 2000, I married for the fourth time. It was about then […]

Last night was another night of dreams about animals—lots of animals. It’s a regular thing with me. Animals of all kinds show up in my dreams, an ever-changing variety of beasts, critters, and friends who fly. Whoever they are, they get along with each other.
