Starting Small

Something simple. I’ve been reading a lot about the future by studying the past up to now. I’ve said repeatedly that I don’t want things to return to normal. I want them to be better.

Shadows, Silhouettes, and Silliness

Lessons learned. Learned well. They come to mind without really coming to mind. They are just there. They are a kind of koan. You see something. You react. You stop thinking about your approach.
