December 2016 Open Reading Review
December, saying goodbye to 2016, there was a good turnout.
Always warmth in sharing creativity, inspirations and feedback.
I am thankful for all the efforts of our members. Each person makes special every reading.
Keep the creativity simmering. We will need it for the months ahead. 2017 will be a challenge.
