the space between…

I debated starting this post with a quote from that Dave Matthews Band song but it would be irrelevant. This post has nothing to do with that. There is this moment, this occurrence that I’m sure has a name but I’m not smart enough yet to know what it’s called. You know that moment, it’s…

Bask in it.

2014 is 1/4 of the way over already, and I don’t have a clue what goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year. In fact, I can’t remember if I set any at all. The surprising thing is… I’m very okay with that. This has been a year of big change, and […]
