I just want you all to know that I haven't had the honor of being with so many wonderful souls in a long time, and during COVID, every new meeting seems auspicious! I've thought of each of you as we became friends….. everyone was so generous in sharing their own skills, experiences, pain, and joy in what seemed a safe and comfortable environment……. thanks for enriching my everyday life!
