    Ep 57: Making December a 'Healing Month', and Finishing 2019 On A Positive Note

    06/12/2019 Duração: 01h18min

    This week is a solo run on making December a 'healing month' to finish the year on a positive note, which I started thinking about on the way back from a recent trip to Berlin.
