• Holly: Thanks so much for taking the time to post these. I'll be hosting the session tomorrow and look forward hearing Robbie and Pat's take.

    Meanwhile, I would love to hear from people here, both before and after the session with your own associations, images, thoughts, and questions in response to the questions. Don't hesitate, everyone! Time is short: Now that we're nearing the end of the road for this particular course, don't let the opportunity to connect with your peers on this fascinating topic here!
