Lynn has been a fearless advocate for my success in all things. Although our work together has focused on my completion of a writing project and on my parenting challenges, Lynn has helped me to examine more generally issues of work, relationship, and creativity. Throughout, she has proven a trusted coach, cheerleader, and teammate.
Lynn’s own experience with writing for publication has been invaluable to me both in terms of her fine editorial eye (and ear) and in her understanding of the “long-haul” nature of such projects. Her acquaintance with the publishing industry is helping me now to negotiate the challenges of manuscript submission –a daunting process requiring much moral support, which Lynn readily supplies.
With respect to parenting, I have valued Lynn’s insights into the dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship. She helps me to see aspects of it that sometimes elude me and is steadfastly supportive of my efforts while reminding me of my child’s innate integrity.
Lynn has provided unflagging confidence in my ability when I myself have had cause to question it. I’m deeply grateful for her belief in me. Most of all, perhaps, I love how she insists, always, that each and every one of us is divine.
