You are so thoughtful! I will send you a copy of the new book as soon as it is printed. And I also look forward to our next round of flatbreads, salad, and lovely conversation.

A very warm thank you to Dr. Kris Lee. It is a pleasure to have a friend and colleague who continues to enrich the lives of others--through her books, her university teaching, her consultations, and her friendship.

I visited Monomoy HS on Cape Cod during the last school year. Bill Burkhead and his staff have created a truly warm and welcoming environment, a place in which students as well as staff can thrive.

That's an interesting question, Josh. What may have some bearing on your question is that I know that previous studies found that the same described behaviors in men and women are interpreted differently by the reader (also based on whether the reader is male or female)

The results of a survey of the experiences of students in high school are quite discouraging and indicate that steps must be taken to reinforce student input and engagement.

Hi Barry. Thanks for the note. There is so much research about the benefits of yoga and mindfulness for kids. I wish more schools incorporated such activities on a regular basis. All is going well here. Love to the family. Bobby
