January 1, 2011

Catsy asked What are your goals? I usually don’t do this, but somehow I’m feeling like I can. I do yoga every day. I do just enough to get me going in the morning, but never enough to improve. I want to move beyond maintenance. Get a regular writing process going. I hate that writing […]
