5 Minutes

Despite my best efforts, I fell behind this week. Being sick just sucks it right out of me, and I'm trying to remember that the world doesn't stop spinning if I fall behind on things. So even though I'd love to play catch up with Reverb10, I'm just going to do them as I can; […]


Reverb10 Day 12– Body Integration: This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body?
