I have known about and had the assets for a while to make something for the #lighttheworld Christmas initiative, and in the end, I decided I wasn't going to do anything this year. So many talented people create lovely and... Continue reading

Sometimes I'm slow to make connections and yesterday was one of those days. I wrote this post (you can read it here) that was selfish. It was all about me and what I do and need. The premise of Ciceros's... Continue reading
