What Do You Hold Dear?

Gestation is important to each of us, for we are repeatedly granted the process of developing new life and birthing it into the world. May each of you rebirth yourselves and may each of you ponder what it is that you hold dear. You are dear to me. – Jinx Davis

How to Reframe Your Problems

Photography by Joshua Rawson-Harris There are problems and then there are problems. The big ones are fierce, ugly, life-threatening, and gut-wrenching. The rest are created (and nurtured) in our heads. I know this personally. I have sat in the belly of the whale for years not working on skills I wanted to learn, books I wanted to write, damaging relationships that needed to end, ways to become financially independent, and dreams that yearned for attention.
