Are We There Yet?

Do you find the “finish line” illusive these days? There’s so much going on in numerous areas for us. It brings to mind the old analogy of being a one-armed wallpaper hanger or clown with far too many plates spinning. Enough! Take a deep breath – hopefully, you’re used...

Find the Fear, Find the Freedom
