I used to share an introspective talk each Thursday on my teaching channel on YouTube. I found it good work — even holy work — to work through the tangles of life and life experience together, in this public, humble form. Then I took the whole winter off from it — because I was tired and I don’t think you should speak just to hear yourself speaking.

Today it was time to post again. I recorded this yesterday after a surprise morning snow and a nice talk with friends. I thought…I’m ready to comb through some tangles, and it’s time.

This talk is for you if you’re spinning your wheels, or if you need a call to courage, or if you need to be kinder to yourself. This talk is for you if you’re doing something hard and you need a friend. And certainly it was for me, because I needed all those things.

With love, from the little house,

Happy Spring
