Thank you Susan Christiana! I do feel so fortunate to be able to surround myself with cats and birds and flowers and the people I love. It has been an interesting year — after twenty years of teaching yoga (and at the age of 52), I had to have a double hip replacement in November. I am all recovered and am back to my big hikes in Peter’s Canyon, but it has been a time of transition, sort of a “half-way” point in life for me. I am really feeling the call to write right now, and am making big changes in my career to allow the space for the writing to grow. It really means a lot, and reinforces my path, to hear from others that they enjoy what I am sharing. It makes it all worthwhile. So, thank you again!
