Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

with your Subconscious, which knows it all better then you do.
I love my job and I kick ass at it.
Cooking and sharing a tasty meal with friends.
Noticing things that make life warmer and more beautiful.
Analysing and coming up with explanations of how things and people

things out of wood or clay, and I can use them with gentle care to
speak passion to you.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With my kids helping them with homework, making them dinner,
