A Time of Giving Thanks, A Time of Hope for Things to Come

By Patti Brown “Leap,” insisted my friend Maggie. “What’s the worst thing that can happen?”  I pondered her nudging. Later that evening I sent that email.

After all, as I mentioned in last month’s blog post, I had been pausing.  It’s been brewing. Rumblings. Rethinking. Recharging. A closet. An opportunity?  […]

Your landing, wherever that may be, leaves you excited, enriched, inspired, more prepared and sometimes a tad  bit exhausted. The […]
