Coming Soon: A Dream That Walks: Setting Realistic Goals

A goal-setting class that is fun? You bet!

You Don't Know Me At All by Rebecca Howard

There’s a darkly funny song by Ben Folds called “You Don’t Know Me At All.”  In it, a couple has the realization that they have absolutely nothing to say to each other and it’s not because they know each other so deeply that words aren’t necessary.  It’s because they have no idea what the other is thinking, nor do they really care much anymore.
