Hey Bonita,


You know some of the same great people that I do! (Julie and Lise below). Would love to come out to a Transition gathering once the dust settles. Babe to arrive any day. Maybe tomorrow or the next day with the full moon.


Be well and enjoy!

Hello Bonita,

I followed your suggestion and joined Transition. I hope this email finds you super well. I wanted to attend your workshop but had to coach cross-country skiing. Will you be at the Ecosphere on April 24th?
