  • Chugging along

I don't mean to give people the impression I have a quick temper. Well, I do but I direct it inward. Not good, but better than at othe... Read more

    So, today's program in SparkCoach was visualization of the future in quite fine details, as well as imagining a phone call from then to now, and what I'd say.  I was kind of surprised with some of it. I was alive, obviously, and married. One thing that surprised me though was that I wasn't living wi... Read more
