    Learning Lessons

    It has been ten months since I found EP quite by accident but now I know this was no accident at all.  I believe that when we are ready to learn a life lesson, that there will be a way opened up for us.  My stories started out as sort of a bitterness about my marriage...

    I'm an individual, and my friends recognise this. Like me they celebrate how we are changing, and becoming all we used to rebel against! That's what my friend Luc thinks.
