@colinwalker Beautifully put Colin. There is a bit of courage needed to make that shift. It is strange that the space that may help taking small steps to do that might just be a more open space too. I wonder if micro.blog or something like it can act as a "local" somewhere we can slow down a bit and catch your 'subtleties and nuance, the unique and the particular'?
