Exercise #868: Self Knowledge
I heard “American Honey” by Lady A yesterday in the car. One of the lines is “Free as a weed.”
I’m not sure why that resonated with me but it sure did. So today, tell us ... are you free?

SUB: Exercise #868/yourname
Why this is a self-knowledge exercise: In some cases “free” is a relative term. I once heard that we don’t own our belongings, we are owned by them. Examining your freedom (or lack of) can be enlightening.
