I am always thrilled to be sharing with you via this wonderful site! I
everyone had a great summer. I did and I look forward to lots of good
together! To get the ENCHANTMENT started I would like to share
with you the next few times some excerpts from my mother's new book, FEEL

indicative of our capacities to rise above disappointment and bad
moments and still find ways to experience good feelings, humor,
insight, love and joy! I hope you enjoy these stories.
Her book is available at...
