No members specific content today. I’m traveling with my daughter (she was invited to a skating development camp). Turns out I don’t have time to write specifically this week. Course Supporter members should start looking forward to a revamp Obsidian course I’ve started. If you’ve got tips for what you’d like in it, leave it…
