"You have a way of getting people to open up that is unique. We were in a room full of strangers and everyone felt comfortable sharing their stories. That's a very rare talent." E. Meyer, Artist and Jeweler, participant in Burbank Library Workshop. Ms. Meyer, who modestly wishes to refrain from having her own photo posted, became a Footprints class member, and the cover artist for "Stories From The Heart," Vol. 3.
"I sing no praise for Georgette or Wilhelmina.
My accolade is for Ina...
She gave my heart a sudden cause
With her writing theme of squirrely paws.
"She led the group
Just like a maestro.
And pulled out ideas to flow and flow.
"Did I say she is a real pro?
I could go and go
On her expertise and skill.
How much time do you have to kill?"
