 Beth attended the Women's March in NYC on January 20, 2018 and had a wonderful day. Resist, Insist, Persist! Make a statement to Trump that hate is not okay and that we all want basic human rights. Beth remains active attending local rallies and writing and calling representatives.

Addressing Culture in Creative Arts Therapy, on Saturday, January 27, was a great success. It was our first official class with a Skype attendee. Patricia Maged joined us from southern NJ. She received the SHELDON AWARD* from me.

*This refers to a Big Bang Theory episode in which Sheldon makes a robot of himself so that he can stay at home and not get sick in order to live more years hoping to make it to era of singularity.
