Hey John, thanks for the shout out! and of course mentioning my cats, meow. As always we are cosmically connected as I just published sort of a congratulatory- thank you to my cats. For real, tho. Interesting how you and I always work like this.

A couple things in response to your list. For one, I follow half the writers you mentioned but NEVER see them in my feed. What’s up with that, Medium? So thank you for the refresher and reminder. As for the others, I’m following them now and am about to start reading their stories you shared.

I’d like to give a shout to Jonathan Greene as well. He has sent me into a mid-life crisis (in a good way) of getting my digital shit together. If we lived near one another I would totally hire him for life coaching.

As for you, thanks for sharing your journey with all of us. Some days your words are the only thing that inspire and motivate me enough to put my fear of the world aside and leave the house. Well, that and Klonopin.

And thanks to Victoria Marie Goulding ☘️! Your compliment made my day.
