Resources Part 2: Finding Flow.

Thinking, thinking...

Don’t Make Her Poopie!


I’m sorry, I’ve done it again. But sometimes, when they get upset, it does feel like you’re dealing with a terribly, powerful little force. Anyway, beware the wrath of…

Deadly Cute...

If I tell you that the reason I’ve not been posting is because we’ve had a baby, would that excuse me? Well even if it doesn’t, I now have an amazing excuse for procrastinating: Gertrude and I welcomed our first little one into the world two weeks ago. She’s been code named “Sprout” since we [...]
