My male friends and I wore the shit out of it, yet...

When I was able to pause and look at the riffs in my life as signals, beacons towards a misalignment, I realized the opportunity masked by hardship. I recall the first time this occurred. It inevitably ended in major changes in my life. I had just returned to Los Angeles after a big gamble – I had asked my supervisors in a very big corporate environment to allow me...
