Thanks for making it to the end—I try and save some personal ramblings for this space.
Last week was blissful. I spent it with my family in Osoyoos BC, the warmest place in Canada—and nearly a desert.
I went for a morning run. It was spectacular.
And I also gave myself permission to republish old content in last week's newsletter.
Something I've almost never done. And it got a lot of positive response.
It was a good reminder that sometimes people just want you to play the hits 🎵
