adventures in small steps…

Ok. This should be small step #4, but…well, I was out if town for small step #4. In southern Oregon with friends, where we were without wifi for a whole week.

All the while, I kept trying to grasp onto one small step that I was taking so that I could share it here.

Then I heard an interview with a scientist talking about how humans have harnessed energy over the years-since discovering fire, when I realized that

Life is a constant amassing of small steps.
