Your Monthly Gazette: Issue 2.04 - April 2016

From the Editor

 Spring is in the air - the birds are migrating, the flowers are flowering, jewelers are jewelering, and, at your place, , well, what is happening?

When I think of spring, I think of new beginnings and inspirations. This, typically, also brings with it new challenges which can be seen as obstacles or opportunities -- opportunities to learn and to develop skills, which is very exciting!

I, for one, would love to hear what is in the works for you: what are you working on? What new skills are you going to take on? What challenges are you struggling with at the moment and which ones have you recently overcome?
Post a blog and share your story. We'd love to hear. Remember that when you share what you learn, then we all learn!
