💻 When I was 22, post-college and in my first career job, I found myself increasingly miserable. I got a therapist. The first thing she did was teach me to identify and label my emotions. This was a huge game changer in my life. Brett and Kate McKay talk you through how to do this, and how it can help you be more personally powerful.

    Love that “Recommended Reading” is back….always love the camera stuff…I’ve turned down more than a few of those 120 TLR’s that had the focus geared between the two lenses, all of them were “unmovable” and seemed jammed. I don’t think they were ever offered cheap enough for me to try fixing them myself. I salute Peggy for taking a wack at it!

      I have 13 geared TLR’s. Eight Ricohflex, the whole series, and six Kodak Reflex and Reflex II. Interestingly all the Ricohs were easy to fix so they all have smooth focusing. The Kodaks are a mixed bag, but not because they are hard to focus, but because some of them no longer completely mesh so the two lenses skip past each other in places.

        I’ve seen that with the Kodak’s I’ve seen…only saw one Ricoh in my city over the years…
