So heartwarming, Sarah. Just what we need more of - stories of friendship and support, confidence and generosity!

I'd like to give you a big hug for getting these two most generous, creative and inspirational friends together to share a pretty big slice of their journey with us!
Thank you!

Thank you for reading! I am honored to have these two contribute to the project. I hope all of our paths cross soon!

The only news fit to print.

This, from Maya Angelou, relates to the career-or-not & love-your-cake-and-feed-it-to-others-too themes above:

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.”

Mentorship is the way, and some people are exquisite at the art. Thanks for high-lighting these generous and generous-minded artists.

Thank you for providing us
in the sense intended by Robert Frost
in "Provide, Provide."
