You’ve probably been wondering why you haven’t seen our eNewsletter in a few months. I am truly sorry that it’s been so long since the last edition. The last few months have been filled with so many things; things both close to home but also things in the greater world. I am not sure where to start because indeed sometimes just saying nothing works best. Listening to nature could hold some truth though. I’ve always felt there is wisdom in the silence of the Earth.
