Gray

I was inspired today by a person whom I’m growing closer to. I suppose I could classify him as a friend at this point, although we have never met in person and have communicated only through email over the course of a few days.  A pen pal perhaps, he has shared with me his philosophy […]

Illuminate to Eliminate

I tweeted today, “Can life be any more FULL?!?” The painful, the amazing, the brilliant, the hideous….all of it is valuable and necessary to become who we desire to be. We’ve got to be willing to go through it all too- not just bear it. We need to milk it, dig at it, peel away […]
