When I decided to re-create my website, I considered it very important to write a 'thank you note' to all those who have helped and continue to help me become the woman I am today. My gratitude to you is magnanimous because you have guided me specifically or in ways unbeknownst to you. Many of you may be unaware of the profound impact you had on me. In some ways, I was not even clear what you were doing at the time, but only gained the words to express how I felt and how I thought after the interaction. In addition, if you need words of encouragement and to know that you are beloved, you can always return here even after my number is called. Yes, that may sound ominous but the reality is - it is the truth.

Quarterly Quote

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

"I do take my work seriously and the way to do that is not to take yourself too seriously." ~ Alan Rickman

"We categorized, labeled, and measured ourselves and then made a niche to match. The niche became our boundary, so that our aim became filling niches instead of fulfilling our lives." ~ Virgina Satir
