Well done for this morning. I so enjoyed it. I took pages of notes and pictures. I loved it. I’m so in synergy with what you are doing. I’m so passionate about it as well. I feel that this is something we need to work on fostering in our homes as well as everywhere else. There was so much information. I wish I could have absorbed it all.
