    Hi Liza. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your narrative. You have a lot of wisdom. I am happy that you have discovered your strengths and work where your skills are not only valued but vital. We extroverts get a lot of attention and prays through school but if we are paying attention we know how often NOT talking and listening is what other people need. Thank you for sharing your insights. I would love to read more of your writing in the future to help me see the world from another point of view.
