There are 6 or so billion people on the planet. Give or take. While there are a crazy number of different ways that genes can combine somehow people still sort of end up looking like each other. Which can make for confusion, and hopefully an interesting story or two…


Share widely.

If you’d like to throw your name in the can to tell a story, and you know you’ll be a lil’ late, post a comment here.

See you ’round the mic. And as always…

Listening is an act of love.
