Supporting Actively

It’s a rather grey, cloudy day here in New Hampshire. I can see some bright blue sky peeking through here and there, but for the most part everything feels soft and drowsy.

Promises and Commitments

Hello, Dear Readers. Today is Monday, September 11th. It’s currently 9am. I’m sitting in a Starbucks right now, composing my thoughts. I would normally write this at home, probably near the end of the day, but the universe has conspired against me. Katie and I decided that I should try to post blogs on Monday,… Continue reading Promises and Commitments
