So, how are you feeling?

Shayna Friedman

By the time you are reading this, summer is well underway. If you are up in the country or camp, perhaps you are having a blast and feeling great. Maybe you are feeling lonely or bored. This time of the year also means the Three Weeks, bringing feeling of sadness and loss. Feelings are a large part of our experience, affecting the way we behave and even the way we think. Come journey into this complex inside world and who knows? What you read might even change how you feel about feelings.
