Everyone has their own personal code. Some have a really cool inner guidance system. We sometimes admire qualities that we may want for our own, or feel good to us when we connect with whatever it is.

I’ve got a new idea for a website. For the past several weeks I’ve been scribbling pages of notes on site goals, value proposition, and all the things that I want to make it worthwhile, link worthy and fun for visitors.
