Dear Allyson,

My question is about your creative process and how you handle the publishing part? 
Do you feel self conscious about displaying your vulnerability?

Dear Sher,

A public persona might entail putting our private soul and life on display, allowing the possibility that people might laugh at, criticize and judge us. Depending on what we want to do with our life, interactivity and making more friends might also fulfill our soul’s purpose. The risk might be worth the reward. Many choose a path of privacy. Some choose to widen their interconnected Net of Beings. Rather than being self-conscious, I practice being mindful of my actions in place and time, and simply share with the "unknown friend."

Love this quote: “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” — Dr. Seuss, children’s book author

In loving service,
