Hi folks. I received a request from David in Seattle for Emotionally}Vague Anger on a t-shirt. Due to the current political situation, I thought that a throw pillow might also be useful for many of you on BOTH SIDES.
Do you know anyone that needs some artistic anger management? Buy or gift a men’s or women’s tshirt or throw pillow on Redbubble here.

Heroes like Seth Godin and Brené Brown advise to open up to vulnerability, connect and tell our stories.
Feeling a bit like a hedgehog upended, I wonder how I can start telling this story, my story? To open up my heart and dreams with you without a neat ending? What will happen? How will it feel if nothing happens?
So here goes… I’m going to share the news of the last 6 months. Work is bubbling. Check in for changes, struggles, moving on and knuckling down. Short and sweet about once a week.
