Thank you, thank you, and thank you. What I really needed was a vacation from being myself--from being the independent decision maker, the "mouth," the planner, the role model, the caretaker, the entertainer--the Miss Personality. Instead, I could just "be." I could smile... Or not. I could speak... Or not...I could think... Or not. You created a safe place--an oasis close to home where I could be transported & transformed. We often think of "creative" as someone with paints or a typewriter, but in essence, to create something is to make something... And you really made something of incredible value. So, thank you. 'Til next time. PS. The weight has stayed off and I've truly never felt stronger!
