In conversations with friends and acquaintances, I have noticed myself saying “Something told me …” very often. “Something told me” to have the trees in my yard pruned before going on vacation.

One morning about 4 weeks ago, I was on a run in my neighbourhood. Coming up a hill, I got separated from my running partner. As I huffed and puffed up the hill, I noticed a man on a bicycle. He rode ahead, then kept circling back. I noticed his actions and started to think […]
