While we had a relentless winter here in New England, I was also dealing with a personal "winter". My mother loved my newsletters and was always the first one to send me comments. So this is the first one without her support. Perhaps they have the Internet in heaven and she can still read it. But for now, there are crocuses in my garden, Marilyn Taylor and I have a fabulous week-end retreat to tell you about, and life is pregnant with growth and new possibilities. I have been blessed during this time with wonderful, challenging clients and just did another SoulCollage® workshop, and I finally have a new website with all kinds of new offerings. Coming up, I am going to be doing a series of articles for you on increasing your productivity and organization-- so stay tuned. If you have specific struggles with those issues, let me know and we will tackle those too! Just hit Reply to this email with any comments or requests!
It is good to be back and have the chance to re-engage with each of you!
