When we don’t really know what’s going to happen—with the pandemic, with the economy, with the daily unrest—it’s easy to fast forward to fear. Lately, I’ve been doing just […]

“Things that are impossible are everyday experiences when you live in advanced states of mind, when you live in a world of constant miraculous awareness.—Rama When I was a kid, I collected napkins.

Small sign, ginormous implications
