Some responses to Danielís April, 2009 Poetry Performance
I want to thank you for giving me a memorable day. You moved us all forward as a group and challenged us out of our comfort zone. You have a great way of supporting people while showing them that they have more in them to draw on and build on. You gave us a great deal to think about for the future. Thanks for all your support and kind words and for a big push in the right direction. We all shared a laugh and a cry. Great day with cherished friends.
