  1. The impact of your writing, Jean, is for me a Balm in Gilead. You offer such peace of mind, a zen calm all the while leaving learning stones that I will return to throughout my day/week and re-think what it is you were doing as your crafted each sentence as you guided your Readers. Simply Brilliant. Who rocks?, easy: Jean Ryan!

  2. I had already read and enjoyed this piece, so I am happy for you to get this news. Congratulations!
