What a lovely way to start this day, with this message from you, and Dareen’s poetry. On a morning when I am trying to transition from the holidays back to being a writer in a silent room with a book to finish. Dareen can write so beautifully there, in that place.

I understand that you are working in Human Ecology now, full time in the perfect place, where you will model the positions and experience of the students, leading them on with your support and inspiration. I’m delighted to know this! …
I wish you an amazing year, filled with light, love and happiness, as with all the years to follow.
Much love, as always, Nance
