The Antidote

I’ve been paying more attention to my ‘self’ in the past few years than I ever have. It’s hard to describe but I’d say the catch phrase or buzz word for this is “self awareness” or “mindfulness” and I’ve gotten pretty good at analyzing what is going on in my brain, it doesn’t mean its…

The Third Ode to a Mother’s Mourning

I was still in the early stage of my business with Pearl, and now I find myself pretty well established in business and feeling the most “stable” of any…
