“The mountains are calling and I must go.” — John Muir

Tuesday is here again and I’ve been super distracted with multiple commitments over the last few weeks. It’s hard to stay focus, expand your horizons and get the daily things done–all while paying the bills. We all have responsibilities and one of my self-imposed jobs is to deliver this batch of links to you every week.
