I am here. Somewhere along the edge. Working at it, in a minimalist way, some people might say. Getting healthy involves a lot. Not all the pieces work together at the right time. The main thing, I AM still in the game, despite the se... Read more

That has new meaning. Different meaning. Evolution of point of view, mindset becomes variable, life changes everything. Things I held on tight to, I am learning to let go. To unclench my little fist and let each finger set th... Read more
