Being brave like the friendly neighborhood birds

Still, going out in the world at this time feels brave to me. I am mildly agoraphobic and experience panic attacks outside of my comfort zone. Right now, I don't have a comfort zone outside of my apartment - new neighborhood, new transit lines, new neighbors - so even going to the balcony feels scary. And when the fire alarms in my building went off that afternoon - well I'm happy it was taken care of promptly and we all were able to go back inside relatively fast. And yes, I stayed far away from the crowds while keeping the building in sight; better that way after I accidentally got startled when a friendly boxer dog tried to say hi.

March Bonus Booklet: An Excerpt for guests

Dear Guests, I realize there may be some skepticism about joining the mailing list. And to be honest, I feel the same way too. The same thing about using the word "donations" to ask people to contribute money to keep this business and Untangled Connections going. It feels awkward and brings out many triggers (a story I will share someday on Untangled Connections). But I still have to make money - at least enough to pay for the upgraded accounts and programs that allow me to share new and high quality content - too.... Then I realized "oh that is why my favorite author's share snippets and excerpts" because people like knowing what they are getting in advance. And they like getting exclusive content that is not available for free on the blog or in other locations. So, I'm sharing two excerpts from the March bonus booklet here.
