Notes from Steve

February one. Hmmm … I hate this month. Hate.this.month. #februaryhater. However, being on a path of healthy perspectives and rising above the emotions, I am compelled to not judge this month by what it is (a small, cold, dark month designed to test the will of even the strongest) but...
