thank you for your raw sharing of how this came about...I can relate (I've been through one submission, got alot of GREAT feedback, and now I'm just sitting on it, letting my ideas of another proposal simmer on the back burner for now)...and I appreciate your honesty and can't wait to hear how the journey continues for you, and to celebrate the final piece when it is done!

I am happy for you as you explore the dimensions of big and little, before and after. I am happy not because of what anything means, hither or yon, but because your happiness is infectious!


CONGRATULATIONS - happy, happy, happy dance on your behalf.
