Stockpile of Sunshine:Dispatches on Living a Dreamy Life
Unedited Optimism: 2022 Year in Review

Do you think out loud or to yourself? Do you seek others when you need to work through an issue? Or do you go within? How you behave has everything to do with how you process information. Both ways are valid. Understanding how we think can breed compassion about different communication styles.
