    What a wonderful message that we all live together. Stay on track and shake the dust! Thanks Tess! I’m so happy to be part of your positive community!

    By the way, my teenage kids just love slam poetry. My youngest’s English teacher invited one into their class when they studied poetry. He loved it!! It’s a wonderful way to reach kids.

    I held my breath the entire video, not realizing I stopped breathing until it ended. When I started breathing again 😉 , I realized what a lovely world I’m in and how fortunate I am to know you.

    Today, *you* shook my dust from my shadows and I’m a bit lighter in my steps. Enjoy your holiday, happy Winter Solstice, and keep smiling!
