Notes from Carole
is my favorite season of the year with Spring and Fall as runners up.
Usually, I have a 2-3 tomato plants in my garden. This year I expanded
to 15 plants. I'll let you know in my next newsletter if I'm a
successful tomato farmer. We took a half share from a Community
Supported Agriculture Farm (CSA), so we are eating more locally grown
vegetables, particularly more greens than usual and loving it.
taking some vacation time in August. I will be driving to New York with
Neesa, my small dog, to visit with my daughter and granddaughter. My
daughter and I will spend a few days in the Catskills area before
picking up my granddaughter from a Performance Arts Camp. Then back to
New York for a few days before driving back home.
I will be away from the office from:
Wed., August 18 through Tues., September 7

The Power of Connection
On April 26, 2010, in Tel Aviv, Israel, Hedy Schleifer presented "The Power of Connection" at the TEDxTelAviv Conference. TEDx is a program affiliated with TED,
which brings together influential people speaking to a global audience
about their passion and about new ideas that make a difference.
Hedy Schleifer is one of my mentors. She has given advanced training workshops for Imago therapists in Southeastern Michigan on several occasions in 90's and in early 2010. She lives in Florida,
but travels with her husband, Yumi, all over the globe to train
therapists and give workshops for couples. She and Yumi speak several
languages. They have trained in South Africa, Australia, Austria, France, and other countries throughout the world. She is an amazing person who has enriched my life and work.
