And I’m fine with that. Honestly, I do feel a huge sense of ‘next chapter’ in my life.  I’m not sure that it was very gradual either.  I’m feeling like I’ve drawn a line in my mind; “Here are the thoughts, actions, desires, and goals of what used to be, and on this side is […]

Hall’s Rule of Social Order – #90

13 August, 2012 (12:00) | Hall's Rules of Social Order
