Jim and Peg-- I have found that using the combination of AI and OS
energizes people and opens them to possibilities of will, commitment AND
abundance. This summer I used a combination of AI and OS with a number
of community stakeholders around the theme: creating communities that
truly support all parents in their job of raising healthy children, They
left the 2 1/2 day session convinced that all the resources they would
need were out there for them to access. And five months later, they are
making both incremental steps and quantum leaps and have found human and
capital resources to implement all nine projects, including the
development of large one-stop service centers in the three communities.

Peg, I hope you keep us posted on the decisions about process and about
the outcomes of your project.

And to both of you and the others on this wonderful list, I wish you
abundance, health, love and joy  in the next millennium!
