What 2010 taught me

December 14th, 2010 by Lauren · 4 Comments

I’m dipping my toe into this Reverb 10 thing. Not sure I can devote 31 posts to it, and December’s already halfway gone, but as I understand it, the spirit of the project is to inspire and catalyze reflection and transformation, not to create heavy homework – so if one post is all I manage, […]
