Happy New Year to my beautiful listening family all around the planet. We have reached two milestones: a new trip around the sun and 1100 shows. I am having a hard time wrapping my small mind around both concepts. Feeling deeply grateful for so many things in this moment. This episode is just me reflecting on a few things and giving a few shout outs.

Special thanks to all of the wonderful guests who continue to show up and really show themselves so authentically. I am amazed to bare witness and celebrate the depth of these exchanges.

Shout out to all of the people who reach out and bring these incredible souls to our attention.

Much gratitude to my technical comrade, the great Matthew Wayne Selznick. All of this works because of his expertise and exceptional work ethic.

Love and light to the patreons who donate to this show we can stay commercial free. Your generous ways keep us going and flowing.

Lastly, to the many who listen and are a part of the family. Wherever you are, we are connected forever.

Thank you.
