• • • Some days are difficult days. I had one a few days ago… but then I looked at this photo and the difficulty just… evaporated.  Not permanently – but when it returned it was a little bit lighter.  Or I was a little bit lighter.

Can you put words to this?  I believe with my whole self that you can; you guys have been proving that for a year!  I can’t wait to see how you do it.
