You did it again.

While mistakes teach us, shape us, and ground us in humility, they tend to become patterns with maddening regularity.

This Tuesday, come share or listen to tales of big and little mistakes, and the places they took you.


…AND an announcement from the good folks at the Ale House:

Monday, December 15 The Olde English Pub (Albany)
Hosted by Gregor Wynnyczuk
7:30 – 9:30 pm
25 Quackenbush Square
Theme: “Cash Money”

Money is funny. It makes us do things, like get jobs and worry. But it can also give us freedom, relaxation, and fun. So it’s a significant thing in most of our lives – a relationship that we rarely ever talk about publicly.

So during this holiday season we associate with abundance, generosity, and financial stress, come tell your stories of dollars and (non)sense…

Sign up 7:00, start time 7:30.

Share widely.

If you’d like to throw your name in the can to tell a story, and you know you’ll be a lil’ late, post a comment here.

See you ’round the mic. And as always…

Listening is an act of love.
