Debra! Hail and well met! Did you know that I still remember taking a workshop from you -- I think it was at the inagural Los Angeles Storytelling Festival.
I'm looking foward to following your thoughts here!
I'm begining to wonder how many folks I may actually know here!
I'm glad you read about Camp Cadi-Safe Girls Strong Girls. If you have friends in Atlanta, please encourage them to attend the gala Sept 18th. Amy Barth has created such an amazing program and I'm sure as the word gets out it will grow. She has strarted taking it national, (the last camp was in NJ-my stomping grounds) and she hopes to take it to the west coast.
