Happy New Year...


..and thank you to everyone who reads this blog (we're now into Year Three!), and my other efforts. I'm very grateful. It feels like having a network of friends all over the world. I love my friends wholeheartedly; many of them have been through thick and thin with me (you know who you are...), and I'm always delighted to add a few more. This year, I added some family to the mix; my sister and I had been estranged, but we're talking twice as fast to make up for it. She and her family are beloved...finding her again has changed my life. So, I have a great deal to be thankful for.

This new year will be as busy as last, and I'm looking forward to getting out and about to meet new people, run some workshops, do some demonstrating, that kind of thing... I aim to do everything I'm doing now...just a little better! May you, too, have a joyful New Year, full of learning and love.

I don't have a sister but I was estranged from a daughter for many years.... we have reestablished our relationship and are enjoying making up for all the lost time. I wish you and your sister much joy in your new found closeness.....life is so short, it's a shame to waste any of it holding bad thoughts !
I will be checking in to your blog from now on. Marilyn
