update, grief, and dreams log

There’s been some additional weight added to my life, in addition to the overwhelm mentioned in my previous post. As my fingers try to relay the thoughts and feelings from deeper places inside me, documenting recent dreams here seems interesting.

Bits and pieces from earlier in the dream involved driving around, chatting with others under the warmth of the sun.

And a hefty portion of that, for me, has been trying to…

What a Leader Do

I’m the type of person who likes to “do.” I volunteer and get my hands dirty, and I speak up when I think there’s indecisive silence. I’ve had a penchant in the past for sharing lots of material with my peers, hopeful they would read the same things and arrive at similar conclusions. I’ve become intentionally selfish for myself of late. I retired from all leadership positions – largely…
