Absolutely. I feel in myself a paradox--when it comes to the macro, i.e. outer, shift to a much bigger-picture perspective, as you say, in terms of time and space; on the other hand, my own life, the micro, is asking of me to go further in, to find the roots and discern which ones to keep and which ones to burn away, so that I can build a solid foundation for what comes out of this process.
It's definitely a fascinating time to be alive, and I am grateful to be here; at the same time, I recognize sometimes it feels like just too much.
I'm willing to honor both and just let things develop.
Anyway, great piece!
