Love, love is a verb, love is a doing word. In Episode 6, I interviewed ex musician Damien Tapley, now a creator of therapeutic, spiritual experiences. I posted a callout on Facebook for more male talent after a call for a masculine perspective. Social media delivered in the form of Damien Tapley. Actually, it was my IRL friend Bec who referred me to him. Thanks Bec!
