I am a procrastinator.

 

 

When this pandemic hit, I decided as long as I was going to be isolating at home, I might as well dig into the numerous projects I’d been putting off for years.  I made a list—clean closets, drawers, cabinets, and the storage area which hasn’t been tackled for, well,...

Write a guest post for Corey’s blog? 

My inner critic was quick to respond,

“No way, it told me, that’s too scary. It’s out of your comfort zone.”

Totally true, I thought.

An ivory and coral choker. Incredible carving, a masterpiece but sadly not for the elephant, and far more beautiful roaming without fear than as an adornment on someone's neck.
