No action needed on your part, I’m just glad you’re here. I welcome you and welcome October.
In my workshops and writing, I help you be in the moment (breathe). But some times also require a looking back and looking forward. Now is one of them.

Last month saw the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She fought tirelessly for equality and to uphold the Constitution. We can do no less. Next month, we decide the fate of our democracy and our nation. Are you registered to vote? We the people includes you. Be part of the democratic process, even as the president attacks it. Your vote counts, now more than ever. Exercise your voter rights. It’s the American thing to do.
