We're well into January and, with it, the new year's winter season. But here in California, even up in the rainy northern parts, we've been getting very odd weather: 70s to 30s F all in the same week. Meanwhile, I'm sure our friends in Australia are reading this while under a shady tree, taking refuge from the summer's sun. It's funny how far reaching the internet is. It really is a time for global consciousness.
We received a really great email from Anne Selby of UK (www.anneselby.com), inventor of the Compleat Arashi machine. In addition to some helpful feedback about the ISS, she also had something to share with all of her new friends from the France event. Anne writes:
It's been a couple of busy months since ISS08, yet I find myself referring to my notes, or recalling conversations with other delegates almost every day. It was a unique event, very ambitious, and for the short time I was part of it, hugely memorable and valuable. I feel I have an international network of colleagues that I can reach out to in the future. A grateful thanks to Yoshiko and Peter for being so visionary and incredibly organised, to make such a complex venture work.
An afterthought - I emailed everyone who asked me to keep in touch with them about my Compleat Arashi machine - but this depended on my [being able to] successfully read their writing correctly!! If you have not heard from me and had expected to, please email me so I have your correct address. anne [at] selby [dot] cc
Thanks for the feedback, Anne. Hope to see you in Kansas at SDA in June.
