Now Introducing Angie Franklin
The most profound power of change is people of good character aiming their superpowers at unrealistic dreams.
Because if it were realistic, we’d already have it, or be close to having it, so what’s the point of building toward it?
Angie Franklin’s a yoga teacher. That’s a place to start with her anyway, because it’s one of her superpowers, and it fits nicely on a business card. Angie Franklin: Yoga Teacher. It’s direct. You know where you are with a yoga teacher.
Made myself laugh for a second. Whoever heard of someone with only one superpower? That would certainly be a dismal view of the world.
Angie’s got several. She teaches yoga, certainly, and she knows people, and she knows how to communicate with them. She’s got a welcoming style all her own that looks so nurturing to me.

If something’s unrealistic, that’s the world daring you to change it.
