Companies Want To Think For You …
… and they’re getting better and better. The ‘auto suggestions’ they offer at the bottom of my emails are eerily accurate options lately. But I never take them.

It underlies just about everything that you do. What we’re talking about here is the unspoken, buried,Continue reading “Everything Casts a Shadow”

If you practice sitting still, being quiet, and really listening to your body (and the universe that it is a participant in), something amazing begins to happen.
