  • We abandoned that, because of transition
  • It was a silent experience
  • There was a necessity, not a passion
  • Every transition is unique
  • It’s loneliness
  • Water cooler conversations
  • I had this ‘A-ha’
  • Enlightened self-interest
  • Best thing we can do is stop and reflect
  • A period of tension
  • Embracing limitations
  • Boredom
  • Gratitude in the moment
  • Seed, water, plant, nurture
  • We’re all in this together
