For the second night in a row I have slept through until 5:05am, and not woken up at 2:50 or 3:15, or 4:30.

Last week, I texted "It doesn't hurt to look at other options" to a friend who was considering moving. I have been thinking about that all week. I think I was wrong. Change hurts. It hurts to look at other options, because the very act of looking acknowledges the possibility of imminent change, and changing hu...Read Full Post »
