Taking a much needed Digital Sabbatical

“Practice not-doing and everything will fall into place.” – Lao Tzu

I love my time online! Love it!

An attachment, a love, a feeling for this blog and all its beautiful readers is difficult for me to put into words. I’m overjoyed and swimming in gratitude for all the blessings this Positive Provocations community has brought me.
