Cultivating a 'We'

Thursday, February 01, 2018

Looking at these three words, “Happy New Year”, I wondered aloud to myself - there isn’t much to celebrate about in 2018. Going back to school simply means taking on a heavy load of responsibilities and trying to come to terms with my perpetual anxiety and nervousness.

Do you ever wonder what is real around us?
