We are taking our last steps in the name of, 'The Essence.'
On Thursday we picked her up from the printer. On Friday we shared her with our family.
It was here in yesterdays sharing that the joy of the start came back to meet us. We had cake and champaigne on the ready that lay untouched as the room became quieter and quieter with each copy handed out.
Within the room were several of our contributors and I was again reminded of the richness that lives here.
In the evening we handed over a copy to one of our alumni contributors and as I watched her turn to her page, and read her words in print, I remembered one of our original intentions; To give back to this network and to the individuals that make it up. And still, the gift that has been given to me from my time here is far greater that I could ever return. I've been given the opportunity to glimpse my capacities, and now I can't look back.
