Because I said I would

Written by

Promises, Promises

NOTE TO SELF

Written by

Dear Self,

I’ve got to hand it to you; you’ve come a long way. Why just in the last couple of weeks, you’ve gone from Hawaii to New York, LA to Chicago, LA to Georgia and Alabama and numerous places in between. You’ve time traveled, juggled networks and clients, created, collaborated, and connected people to projects across the US. And that doesn’t even begin to address the mental and emotional distances you’ve covered! Whew!
