John - you have expressed much of what I have felt along my Medium journey too.

Never thought poetry would my go to either... love that it is.

Becoming a better informed and enriched human right along side you - while taking away the guilt that had begun to form around me for not being able to read as much as I used to... a time and season, but I indulge with love and excitement each time the opportunity to arises...like now!

So grateful to have read this piece.

Thanks for writing.

Thanks for being you.
