Practical steps to ease, ease, ease and more ease

One of my dearests, with whom I text every morning, and I have a somewhat common refrain to our morning texts. May you find ease, ease, ease, and more ease, we text each other. I’ve had some tough weeks for a number of reasons, and yes, the (healing) concussion hasn’t...
