It took a little bit to get connected to the host, but once connected the response was immediate and warm. I joined their FB group as well and unexpected and much to my surprise another round of super warm welcomes.

Got to join the video group yesterday, and was amazed. It was less structured than other meetings I have been to...had a lot of really interesting people there. Incuding a famous cartoonist and someone who actually knows (as in they are friends) Teepa Snow.

We found out she was in my state yesterday...and when I looked it up, she was even in my suburb, but the price was way beyond us so poo. But I am contented to know that she is here and breathing the same air.

It just amazes me in such a deep, huge blessings, kind of way that despite all our individual hurdles to get online and talk...that we are. I have such reverence and appreciation...am just so moved by it.

Thanks for posting an update. Happy that you got connected...Even happier that you had positive experiences with the site. I realize that you might be to soon for you...but...In the future you should consider making a mentor film.
