    2022-12-03 New Leaf #2 🍂

    …but a series of explorations and experiments. Some turn out great and some don’t. Each, in a way, informs the next. Maybe you do the same experiment over and over, changing a few of the variables each time to see how it alters the outcome. You might even do the same thing in the exact […]

    2022-09-14 The Daily Pep and Thoughts on Quitting

    The Daily What?  The Daily Pep. One of three podcasts I’ve recently taken to listening to on a regular basis.
