Start before you’re ready

About a month ago – or “BTP” (before the pandemic) – I created a YouTube video called Start Before You’re Ready.

Fast forward to today. I was out walking on the seawall, all alone in the rain.

It was just me and my thoughts.

What should I write about? 

What speaks to me? Comes from my heart?
