This year’s final prompt is about permission. It’s also the first time I’ve cracked a long-standing goal of incorporating music into these messages. (Thank you, Keith Jarrett.)
Once you’ve recorded an answer, may I suggest writing a physical permission slip, signing it, and keeping it somewhere visible or meaningful? Couldn’t hurt.
You can hear the full prompt and leave a message at 1-503-673-6267. You’ll have three minutes to answer however you’d like.
Thank you for making the second half of this chaotic, lonely year a little more humane. I hope this space has afforded you a chance to feel heard.
Take care out there, and I’ll see you in 2021.
