  1. I love your take on Penelope Trunk. I haven’t read her blog in awhile, so I’m going to go catch up.

    • Haha, I always get nervous including her links in case it gives the impression I endorse her point of view! I think it’s really interesting to consider lots of perspectives, and hers is always unique and thought-provoking.
