Deconstructing the story: different techniques for connecting with your story.

The mate tea

I love mate tea. I first started drinking it when I was in Argentina. It was prepared by some fiends of mine from Bahia Blanca and I soon became addicted. I was delighted when I found a story about the mate tree. This story comes from the Guarani Indians. I have just translated it and can be found in Stories from the Americas . It is a magical story about a child, the rainforest and the search for the moon. Please share it with others!

If, however, you want to read the full legend of the vanilla, go to… Continue

I have had the incredible opportunity--- and challenges, of working the marketing side of a new development here. It is a "Village" idea. The first homes were completed in recent months, and more are beginning. The new elementary school, just down the brand new road, opens up in a few months. The City Parks teamed up with the University here and developed a beautiful, 10-acre, indoor outdoor tennis center center, also just down the new road from THE COTSWOLDS (the name for the VILLAGE.… Continue
