The Way I See It

“There’s a special place in hell for women who refuse to help each other.”

~Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeline Albright.

A little Starbucks wisdom. This is a famous quote by the former Madame Secretary, but I didn't know about it until I bought a tall hot chocolate. Unfortunately I didn't get the series number off of the cup.

Hi! Sorry I've been incommunicado for a while. I was at Lesley for my MFA and before that, prepping for the residency. But I'm back now! As you know, I couldn't be more happy for your publishing success, and look forward to seeing you work on your PAP!

Hey there--I'm just back from vacation!

Women can be so mean to one another--backbiting, cutting one another down, etc--it's awful. This quote is a great reminder.

Let's grab lunch SOON.

I agree...but I of course would go much farther and say there's a spot for anyone who won't help another human being.

BTW - I think I congratulated you on your recent good news? If not, I apologise as I certainly did mean to. I'll say it again - happy for you and a big, hearty congratulations you are an inspiration. You deserve good things.

Thanks CB! I think 2008 is going to be a great year for all of us. Can't wait to see what else if coming around the corner.
