Mary and I have talked about cancer, of course, but among many, many other things. I would never say that cancer was a blessing because who needs a hellish blessing like that? But, cancer afforded me this very extreme opportunity to both release things that needed to go, confront things that needed to be confronted, and to have the opportunity to go into the deepest parts of myself and really explore. (words by Eve Ensler, author of In the Body of the World)

Mary has been an agent of change for me. I was so fortunate to stumble onto her when I did. We both believe in signs and there were many signs that I was exactly where I needed to be when I needed to be there. I am very grateful for her skill and compassion.

I am expecting 2014 to be a grand year. No resolutions, just peaceful transformation.
