  2. Long time reader here, first time commenter- this post was very timely and exactly what I needed to read tonight. “if it’s not the lighthouse that guides me, then maybe it’s the moon and the stars”… thank you!

    This article was exactly what I needed, I guess. I admire your honesty, especially
