I just received my certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke University!

This course further focused my direction for Art Tasting and expanded the tools in my creative toolbox.  I made unexpected friends here that I will rely on for their extensive knowledge and support.  It has been incredible to connect with such brilliant and warm individuals that are so passionate about the work they do.  I am inspired by the many examples I’ve witnessed this week of people that are bringing about quantifiable change.  We are all impacting the world one way or another, lets make our impact a positive one!

I am walking away with a lot of value that I gained through the course and a whole lot to process.  Thank you to everyone in my class.  I learned something from each one of you!

a word of thanks.

Thank you to to everyone who has offered support, encouragement, inspiration, and friendship to me and to Art Tasting.  I am always encouraged when I tell people about Art Tasting and the classes we teach in the Children’s Home and senior citizen’s homes and they thank me and tell me how needed this kind of work is in our community.  I am continually amazed with the incredible people I am surrounded by; creative individuals with a passion for living a life worth living.  My values are informed and affirmed by the values of so many dear friends who understand or are in pursuit of the important things in this world.

I read recently in a book about patterns of successful people that one of the traits of these individuals is that they surround themselves with people they like, respect, trust and want to work with.  Thanks to all the wonderful genuine people I work/play with, I can honestly say that I exhibit this feature of a successful person.

Thank you for the roles you all play in enriching my life.  Lets keep growing together!
