August 2021 Newsletter – Engage & Feel Better

I don’t know if you’ve been losing sleep about the state of current affairs like I have, but I hope you continue to find sparks of optimism in your days. I have been thinking about the story of the little boy who is walking along the beach with thousands and thousands of dying, beached starfish.

She goes on to say, “...one thing that this worldwide crisis has grimly illuminated is a sharp opposition between those who think as individuals and those who think as a community.
