 Joseph Campbell's description of a hero's journey begins when the hero or heroine feels an inner calling to begin an adventure, a journey into the unknown.  The calling comes after a disruption, or a threat to one's existing life.  For some, this may be a failed relat...

So here we are.  In just a few days, we went from "normal" to being in a whole new landscape.  And when I look to the future, months from now, all I see is a future that is undetermined.  A future that is counting on us to be present in the here and now - to respond di...
