I’ve just recently been bit by the twitter bug!

I’m spending a little more time over on twitter these days (by a little more, I mean moving from hardly ever to once or twice a day) but still it is a blast to connect with people so easily.

If you tweet, please send me a hello @wellgrounded so we can be in touch!

Ripple Effect

I so often find inspiration in the writings of others, that I’m honored and delighted when I read other people’s reflections on articles I’ve written.

Here is a beautiful post by The Flourishing Mother that expands on something I wrote earlier.

If you ever keep the thoughts from here going (and growing!) on your own blog, please drop me a line or a comment. I’d love to read them and pass them on!
