I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year. I hope that 2008 will be generous and prosperous for you, your family and friends!
Peace, Love & Light
No need to apologize, just glad you could write and let us all know how you are doing. It is so easy to get caught up in the millieu of life that we sometimes forget.

Esprit this year has brought about a change in direction for me, or shall I say a more defiend direction towards fulltime. A simple question at Esprit has had a huge influence on my life since. The question was “How are you?” Sounds pretty tame at first blush, but at that moment I was apparently very vulnerable. I started to answer the question but I couldn’t follow through with the usual pat answer. I was soon crying, feeling very overwhelmed. Fortunately I am blessed with wonderful friends, in this case, Cat and Elaine.

Please send me any article you have or may have written so we can get the next newsletter out very soon. I have received pictures from Traci and Stephanie for the dance night, anyone else have pictures?
