I've had a series of big -- potentially huge -- conversations this week, unexpectedly. I left work early and am home cooking, listening to music that makes me feel, and thinking about life, the universe and everything. I have that feeling I get at the beginning of a big experience, of potential, openness, "something's about to happen". I'm afraid and impatient at the same time. Nothing's going to change, but everything's going to change ... soon.
