…Change From Day To Day

This week marked a few milestone anniversaries. On Thursday, the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album turned 50. Coincidentally, on that same day, the 2WC turned ten. Milestones provide an opportunity to reflect and take stock. When I wrote my first blog post ten years ago, I had no idea what the 2WC would become. My plan…
