SLF + TEDx
Very excited to have been featured as a guest blogger for TedxLincolnSquare. Thank you for reading the excerpt below and clicking through for the full piece!
‘Looking Beyond,’ has a pretty short shelf life, depreciating in its illusive ‘value’ almost immediately. Looking beyond _____? Name it, and we know. Name it, and there is less of it. Less beyond.

Comprehension of task and purpose share the (clues/signs) waiting in be/yond: re-gifting us our lessons. Lessons thought completed, offer (unseen/additional) (solution/conclusion:) solutions with dimensional understanding. Comprehension in new context.
