"The Fight to be Authentic, and Loved" Sunday, May 19, 10:50 am, 2024 It is so central to want to be seen and loved for who we are, understood, if we can be so lucky. It is also the source of so much pain (and power) to make that journey in a world, in a family, at a time that won't easily make a place for you in the family of things, to paraphrase…

"When Legacy Propels Boldness" Sunday, April 28, 10:50 am, 2024 The word "legacy" always draws for me images of things past: heavy, anchoring, a little dusty, and old.
