The revealing message of my out-of-focus landscape

Liminal. I discovered this word several years ago and it keeps circling back to me.  It helps me put a name to the fluctuations of my mood and my being. I bend far in one direction, catch myself, reassess, and then shift to another reality. Liminal.  It comes from the…

And into the New Year….

So much chatter going on these days in all areas of our world.  I read the other day how important it is to sharpen our "response abilities."    Respond in a fashion that takes us to a different place rather than reacting right away.  It's so easy to just react.  …
