Mountains are the bedrock theme of my life this week. On the weekend I attended a special gathering with Robert Moss and several conscious dreamers on a mountain in upstate New York. Magic happens there. Every time. Some day I’ll share that experience with you in greater detail. Meanwhile, since I was in the neighborhood of […]
