“As tensions mount and nerves are put on edge, the way you discuss and analyze the political issues at play puts me at ease. It’s therapy for me to hear your sanity and the integral perspective. It’s your down-to-earth, feet-on-the-ground voice that you bring to bear on the issues that calms me down. You reel off some profound insights as if they were the most common-sensical of deductions, which in a way they are. In any case, they give me pause, allow me to hit the reset button, and get on with life.”
