From the Editor

Editors picture October 2014Hello there,

I hope you enjoyed the month that has passed since our last issue. As always, life seems to be going by quickly! A recent opportunity to visit Block Island, Rhode Island allowed me to slow down for 24 hours. In just a day, I felt like I was able “re-set” and truly appreciate moments like making dinner with vegetables from the garden and walking to the bluffs at sunrise. Isn’t it nice when we have opportunities to appreciate the simple things? Have you allowed yourself a retreat recently – literal or metaphorical?

This month we’ve got quite the assortment of articles and announcements to share with you. Please enjoy all of the advice, updates, and insight that our incredible contributors have to share!

Is there something you’d like to see in the VOICE? A particular subject you’d like us to address? Please don’t hesitate to contact us at with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. We are always looking for new perspectives and look forward to hearing from you.
