So good/grateful/life changing to meet/have met/continue to meet you! And "Yes!" to a second room…it helps to have somewhere else to go.

hi Lynn, for me it's been a peeling off of who I was told, & came to believe I was. trying to see all the possibilities that weren't there before.-but i understand what you're saying, often I am lost in the words, feeling inadequate, missing the vocabulary, but sometimes I recognize a chord of truth. maybe it's about the "feel" of it all, rather than meaning? when the lost feelings come, I try to just ride the waves & appreciate the view, hoping I'll recognize something along the way. tea definately helps.

I really should get outside with them every day- an exercise I might enjoy! I remember the Don Ho Show, too…tiny bubbles…. p.s. I played the drums, too (because the band teacher said girls couldn't!)
At this stage in the game, just getting up from the ground in front of people is a show!
The river- a powerful thing, & proof that change can happen. look here http://elwhafilm.com

This theater in the woods has been in action since 1923! Our group put on a concert/talent show on during the last day of our trip. The show included singing, skits, instrumentals, folk dancing, etc. I even dusted off my one secret skill. Growing up, while my friends studied ballet,... Continue reading
