  2. I’m so happy to share…I’ve been fortunate to have those bits of wisdom passed along to me…I then “translate” ideas into my own “language” of image, and pass them along : ) Thank you for your kind words.

    btw..this “translation” idea ties in with Nancy’s post at Spirit Lights the Way…she has excellent explanation, partly from My Stroke of Insight about left brain/right brain functioning: “Mastering your thoughts” http://nrhatch.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/mastering-your-thoughts/

      And speaking of reminders?…whew…I had to use many of those perfections teaching school today, especially patience… generosity….ethics…and persistent effort…there’s where the positive, cognitive left brain commitment comes in!
