os/details/?m=1052 What's the flip side of confidence? Probably anxiety, or fear. (My big insight for 2017, fuelled by exploration of Jon Gabriel, was how pervasive fear can be, arising from Ad... Read more

No golf. No kayaking. Didn't even take a walk. Hauled two Muskoka chairs back onto the verandah -- which is still undergoing repair. And spent most of the day sitting in the shade with Charlie. Just reading. Me, Mic... Read more
