2013 has been an amazing year!  It was filled with exciting adventures and developments, the most dramatic was becoming a grandparent!  It is like becoming a parent in that it is an instant love affair with this tiny person.  Different, of course, in the fact that you know more of what’s going on, yet see them less. securedownload-1

My art, teaching and leading Right Brain Business Plan workshops have taught me so much as I have shared my gifts with many others.

But most of all, it has been a year of travel, with 11 countries, 3 continents, swimming in 2 oceans ( the 2nd one not the one you think) as well as 9 states.

In early winter, we voyaged to Ireland with the whole family, visiting our daughter on study abroad.

The summer progressed with visits to Vienna, Budapest & Amsterdam.

But the most daring trip, the one I call MY study abroad, was solo to Mexico.  I spent a month in San Miguel de Allende, studying Spanish and painting.

It was my first major venture by myself, living on my own in a new country.  It gave me new empathy for what our college students go through.

More travel, this time to Africa.  All these adventures have been great and I look forward to being home in 2014 and building on what I’ve learned.

Wishing you all a wild, wonderful year in 2014!
