Given what constantly vies for our attention (or ‘steals’ the magic of our focus, and thus our energy along with it), it’s important to reconnect again and again with the ‘underground streams’ of authentic vision and true inspiration.

There are times and circumstances that close in on us and distract us from the horizon by calling so much of our attention and energy to the mire that we, for a time, feel devoid of vision, and with it, purpose, and direction.
