62. Jungle

The jungle is as much a real place as it is a mythical one. It’s a place where anything goes. A place of intrigue, mystery and incomprehension. It’s wild, its dark, and it’s inside us as much as it is ‘out there’. This month, as we lean towards an ending, we’re leaning also into the wilderness. Into the unknown. Join us, as we celebrate the last month of 2018, in the jungle.
