Thanks to Marilyn with warm regards from Marge!

      I become a better writer by reading, writing and sharing what I’ve learned. In doing this, I love to highlight the nuggets that I find … like yours.

      • Thanks MK! I think the title scared a lot of readers! Thanks for moving beyond the title to the content. Totally agree with becoming a better writer, as well as thinker by reading from others.
