I’ll be honest, the simple act of listing what we’ve accomplished makes me feel pretty great and makes me excited to contemplate what we’ll achieve in the coming year and years beyond that. Because, to continue being honest, I feel a palpable feeling of overwhelm.

We all know about the triumvirate of “sex, drugs and rock ‘n ‘roll.” Having lots of sex and doing drugs can each contribute to a lack of sleep. I recommend as much sex as possible, but not a lot of drugs.

For some people, some fantasies should remain fantasies. For others, I recommend living the fantasy out, but doing it safely and with wide open eyes and a wide open heart, knowing that we can never really know an experience until we know it.
