Entrenched? Try This.

When we surrender in trust, we are always provided for — perhaps not in the way we'd expect or prefer, but which, at a higher octave, serves everyone involved. I know this. And just enjoyed a refresher course in living it.

The other morning, the a.m. radio personality on the station I listen to shared an arresting story.

Colin Cantwell, designer of the Death Star, described how the most memorable scene in the Star Wars franchise came to be:

"George Lucas gave me the project of designing a 'Death Star'. I didn't originally plan for the Death Star to have a trench, but when I was working with the mold, I noticed the two halves had shrunk at the point where they met across the middle. It would have taken a week of work just to fill and sand and re-fill this depression. So, to save me the labor, I went to George and suggested a trench. He liked the idea so much that it became one of the most iconic moments in the film!"

My trench in disguise

This tale foreshadowed the phone call I'd receive later that day. But first, a bit of backstory:

Throughout late August and into the Mercury retrograde that graced much of September, READ THE REST!
