by Andrew White  |  March 9, 2017

Remarkable!  Woke up tired (and virtually no voice left) and Mused before I had my coffee.  Check out today’s mind mess.  I used a new program I had not used before and it clearly made a difference (check out yesterday) – or my brain is now totally fried.  Interestingly, look at the 2.30 minute point.
