A Word from the Author
“We will embrace the wild, the natural, the free. Let go. Mimic the rose with its many layers. Imitate the wild wisteria vine with its playful unpredictability. And admire the determined ivy for its tenacity and ability to make breakthroughs despite obstacles.
Anaïs Nin said, ‘And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.’
Today is that day. Let us begin together.” --Carrie Schmitt
