No longer operated by the puppeteer who has now put down the control bar, she is able to begin to heal. Her companion uses food as medicine and tries various holistic modalities to bring her back.

I’ve been working on several upcoming projects that require very deep inner work. Maybe that’s why I’ve been procrastinating a bit. Sitting alone with yourself and your thoughts and feelings doesn’t seem very appealing. At least the ego would tell you it’s not.
