I have a habit of thinking. Like, A LOT. My mind is like the ticker bar beneath the CNN news report – a stream of information running through at any given moment. I talk to myself in a constant narrative, taking notice of the world around me and mulling over interesting dynamics that strike me as notable. I have blog posts that I’ve been silently writing for months, but there is always a tipping point when I know it’s time to organize my thoughts and send them into the universe.
Below are some essays from my previous blog that have been more meaningful to me and I anticipate many more random thoughts to populate this blog!
