I’ve been hulled up in my apartment. Typing and retyping words. Reconfiguring art. Analyzing product and brand. Busy being busy. Busy contemplating too many possible outcomes. I broke to go for a leisurely bicycle ride with my loving man and a jolt of recollection comes over me—oh yes, I live ON THE BEACH. I forgot for a moment this is here. That I have to fly nowhere to see this. I can forget all of my troubles and all of my pain to bask in this beauty. It’s all right here. What luck I am blessed with. How I wish my mind could take off the blinders in my most challenging moments.

How do you break out of your blinders, whatever they may be?
