BLOG apology (plus Florence Daté Smith Topaz internment LINK at bottom)

July 21, 2017

As any of you who have checked in, you may have noticed that I have not been very attentive to this blog. This should improve soon…In the meantime, I’ve been teaching Friendly Style Profile and other skill development workshops every so often and seeing clients and colleagues near and far.  Feel free to communicate with me by email ( even to suggest a phone call or Zoom slot.  Looking forward to communicating with you soon.

Strength for the journey!


For those of you who have asked or are interested, we finally have figured out a way to post Mom’s entire Topaz story which I worked with Mom to edit.  (FYI: Mom went over to the other side on June 26, 2017 after a hard day of breathing; she got to 96 (!), went to a restaurant on the Thursday before and friends and I were with her to her last breath.  Please email me if you would like me to send you more info).
