If you’ve ever wanted a little more whimsy in your life, this episode might give you the gentle push you need. And if you have a moment, please do leave a comment about a current or future creative project you are doing or want to do someday. I’ll go first and share that I’m making a super-size hexagon quilt fort that I plan to record some future podcasts in. It’s a ridiculously large undertaking and a bit of a stretch for one person, but I know it will be really satisfying to see this project through. Ok, your turn… what are you working on?
