Are you there yet?
Last week a friend said to me, “You know Sara, it’s hard to get somewhere you just left.” I had to sit with that for a bit. First, it’s not even true. It’s easy to get somewhere you just left – turn around! But I realized that he wasn’t talking about logistics, he was speaking…Read More
