2020 is a milestone year for me – a year where a line in the sand will be drawn so to speak. I turn 50, we are entering a new decade, I'm expanding my business with laser focus, I get to tour a country that's been on my bucket list for two decades, I will experience the Fall season in the Pacific Northwest, and I’m moving away from anything and anyone that leaves chaos, drama, and despair in its path.

Don’t get me wrong – there were also profound moments of joy woven in, but I promise you the loss and trauma far outweighed it. And that was just in the first four years of the 2010s.
