“So I was just doing dishes and hanging out linens on a sunny, nippy morning. Ahhhhhhhhh.... I was reminded of how important such tasks are for so many reasons, but especially in balancing one's self/time in a computer-driven world. I just had a real awareness of that today as I was outside and honestly, I think just preparing inwardly for my parent-child classes next week and your workshop inspired me to take note and be careful! My body and spirit thank you for being such an inspiration even from afar! Back to home life!” Laura Olson
