    Thank you for this timely cast. When many of us who are fortunate enough to have regular contact with others have it largely through email and texting, it can be particularly easy to let those contacts control us, so strongly do we desire to remain connected in any way.

      Marianne you leave the most thoughtful comments, thank you! That’s a great point, emails and texts have kind of exploded, yet they keep us feeling a connection in isolation.

    I really enjoy your podcasts. They seem always to remind me of just what I need to be reminded of. 🙂
