Secrets of the universe

By Dr Xeus - Jan 02 2019

Masterful storytelling that more than hints at what makes life magical. (Good food & wine, success and failure, humor, love and loss, birth and death, and if we are lucky/blessed, strong human connections throughout) A reminder that no one ever dies as long as they tell their story. As Stephen’s grandmother relays in a dream: “We are all falling upwards” (if we live life well) Many thanks to Stephen and David for weaving such a rich verbal tapestry that celebrates the best of our shared humanity.

My favorite podcast.
