We’ve all been there, right? A good idea shows up unexpectedly, and you’re caught without a way to capture it. You’re driving or grocery shopping. No worries, you think. It’s such a good idea, you’ll remember it. As soon as … Continue reading
I reread my last blog post. Seems like I lapse into article-speak every once in a while. I think it’s because it makes it easier to get ideas across when I’m not so personally attached to the information. I’m trying … Continue reading
