The Circular Economy and Zero Waste Retreat in Danjugan Island. Every trip to Danjugan is magical, and this four-day event did not disappoint. It was a sacred and safe space to talk about issues, concerns, challenges, and plans. Developed deeper relationships with friends and colleague, old and new.

My 32nd birthday, celebrated in Balesin because we had to stay another night due to scheduling issues. Not a bad place to get stranded in and celebrate.
My Lola's 85th birthday.
Books: Normal People. I really wanted to like it because there was so much hype around it but it was too bleak for me.
