*Note on connection:  Author and blogger Emily Freeman asks how her writing can “provide a bench for someone to sit on?” She describes her efforts for a genuine online connection in Jeff Goinspodcast. Her words inspire me and epitomize my goals for this site:

"For me and the way I am made, the word ‘platform’ can be kind of can make my soul shake a little bit. Because I'm not quite sure how to do that. But, what I do know how to do is how to sit on a bench with someone else and have a conversation.  The bench doesn't have to be fancy or flashy, but on the bench there is room for two.”
