Spring, finally!

With the arrival of April light, and two shots in my arm, I’m cautiously looking down the road in joyful anticipation. How about you? Have you ever been happier waving goodbye to 12 months in the rearview mirror?

While TTN still offers plenty of opportunities for us to meet on Zoom, now vaccinated members can finally begin to connect safely in person! Check out the latest Events Calendar to find out about TTN Pop-Up Events this Spring.

In the articles that follow, Nancy Gold shares lessons she has learned over the past year, and I reveal your post-pandemic fantasies. TTN Poet in Residence Harriet Shenkman offers up a celebratory poem, and we spotlight TTN author Erica Abeel’s soon-to-be-released novel. Finally, read In Case You Missed It to learn all about recent TTN events.
