This is the start, the beginning, of an open journal where I hope to return periodically and share some of the things I’m learning, practicing, thinking, and doing. Under quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic the need to reflect and create compels many of us and I am no exception. I have hope that what I share here will help someone in some way, but I think my main motivation is for myself in this act, to create a space, an outlet, for focussed thought that is bare before anyone that seeks to find it, using the power of imagined public pressure to ensure I make time for reflection. Reflection is something I think we all benefit from and surely something that will help in this time of isolation, uncertainty, fear, frustration, and panic, when at the very least the crutch of habit and routine has been upended for us all.
