    We share similar names. I’m Susan Ione. Susan means lily. I lived and taught in Inuit villages in Labrador two years and now live in rural Kansas and in New York City. I’ve attained some wisdom in my 74 years, but my children don’t recognize it — yet. Glad to learn some of your story. Thank you.

    I have been trying to register for your Fromm Institute USF class but there are problems with their website, which Fromm Institute staff are unwilling or unable to address.

    I also left a message on their phone line which has gone unanswered.

    Can you help?


    1. Hi Nick,

      Fromm staff usually take the time between Christmas and New Years off. I’m sure that’s why you haven’t received a response. But I’ll send an email to let them and let them know you’ve been trying to enroll. Given the circumstances, I wouldn’t worry about not being admitted to my workshop. Best, Lily Iona Mackenzie

      1. As I suspected, here is the response I received from my email to one of the staff members: Our office is closed for the holidays. I may be checking my email
        intermittently until we reopen on January 4.

  3. I like to write. I always have. I write what u thing. I say things that crack me up and write them down. I always carry a book and at least 4 writing utinsals. Some of the things that come out of my mind… Blows my mind alot if the times. I would like to find something .. Figure out how others can enjoy my silliness as well as my thoughts that I jot down and after my pen hits the pad and I read what I wrote. I have amazed myself. So maybe you might be able to direct me in ways that the world could see and read the thoughts and things and sillnessnessss that’s in my mind and my books I’ve written in. Thank you and God bless.

Comments make my day. Please leave one!
