      I wanted to add that a number of years back I drove past a group of people and this woman looked up and right into my eyes. Something happened. Contact was made. My mood was not good and I worried the rest of the day that perhaps I had transmitted my anger to her with a look that had nothing to do with her, but still the transfer was there. Did it actually impact her? I don't know. I just know the moment was frozen in my memory. It left me wondering about her and I still do from time to time. In that split second our lives had touched and I wondered then and still do just what did we individually draw from that meeting, what did we learn. Hard to explain.

    I always enjoy the class. But this time there was such an abundance of talent present that it was really special. Kate, your demonstration on observation was remarkable

    I am just beginning at mommy magazine in sarasota/Bradenton as a columnist. I had begun a memoir years ago that I always longed to continue writing and see to completion.
