  1. I love how your eclectic range of interests has coalesced into a wonderful existence doing what you love. As I give my mini-presentations, your website will be one of the ones I share to inspire and delight others.

    Thanks for your recent presentation as one of Dori Mintzer’s expert resources. For me, too, writing (particularly the two Musing volumes) has been a therapeutic opening, which I now realize has helped others contemplate their life and their possibilities.
