“What a wonderful and powerful weekend! I will carry it with me in such gratitude. I feel a quiet power that is still carrying me forward. Like a little bird leaving the nest- soaring with new strength and new determination to see just what IS around the bend… ready to face it.  See you again down the road… or stream!”   — 2013 CfR So.ID participant
