During the time when things were still closed, and my typical work experience was disrupted – ie commute time/remote options, there was time for new discovery that was easier to maintain – to follow the ‘crumbs’ from one interesting thing to the next.

Speaking of reinvent, my blog name has shifted on its own. I refer to my content now as day. That’s it: day. I also kind of like the sensual vibe. I’m working that out.
