what i’m into [jan/feb 2019]

  These past few months have been packed. I mean, there was that backlog due to my reluctance in publishing my last post on singlenessĀ and so, my list for this “what I’m into” just kept building up. But, I did want to share the books/articles […]

what I’m into [december 2018]

The year is coming to a close, but thought I would send out one last post before I head off to China (don’t worry…it’s a just a 2-week visit and I’m coming back :P) Here’s the list of what’s been in my headspace to round […]

what i’m into [may 2018]

I realize I have quite a hard time sitting still simply listening to lectures on end. My need for multi-stimulatory information, or to be productive either creating/thinking or using something other than my ears is a bit debilitating. Iā€™m at this conference in Toronto and […]
