I’d like to focus on two of the questions Guy asked; one, asking for quotes which not only have influenced my life, but served to guide how I approach therapy and the other, to mention two “go-to-books” that I [...]

Transitions: Bridges in Time

For someone who hates transitions, I always find myself right in the middle of one. The only redeeming factor is that, and this is the crucial point, I’m never in the same place twice. In other words, I’m not stuck in a transition, I am always moving from one transition towards another.

I am in awe of this [...]
