What I’ve been doing on this website up to this point feels like it’s in the past.
Not irrelevant. I wouldn’t think of taking it down.
But my life has turned a corner. A long slow one, that I only this month look up and notice has happened.
I did notice that big stuff was going on when I decided to no longer carry my Gaia

Here’s the basic intro part.
