What People Are Saying about the Legacy Tips&Tools

I appreciate your monthly Tips&Tools. They reinforce the importance of relationships and effectively communicating to those we care about while we can.

Writing about water, a Tips&Tools suggestion, I was surprised to find that legacy writing is not only about death and dying, but about how all of life is connected through the generations and cycles of time and weather.

[Tips&Tools]…thought-provoking invitations to actually sit down to write about current activities and memories that help to form who we are….It IS a monumental time, and it would be good to give voice to that for future generations. So thanks for the push!!

What a beautiful Tips&Tools this month!  It was ‘soothing’ just to read it.  I especially like the part about balance between being aware of the realities around us and having gratitude about our own lives.

I’ll use this month’s Tips&Tools tomorrow in my writing group where two people are actively dying – talk about lost dreams! Your work continues to grow in me and feeds my work with people living with cancer.

The message of this month’s Tips&Tools astounded me – because I have been there . . . . a wonderful, honest piece this month, and a reminder for me.
