Managing Workplace Emotions
You can't change conflict and opposing points of view in the workplace. You can, however, change the way you react. Become more emotionally aware, harness your emotions and express them positively with control, confidence and composure.

Ra Ra for Shona

Looks like it is a go for the womens downhill tomorrow! Chris is on his way!
Shona and Andrew went free skiing today in the fresh powder. How revolutionary is that?
Meanwhile I enjoyed suning myself on the beach in Vancouver, breathing in the earth musk, new daffodil fragrance and sea air. Oh so nice! Then up the new road to Squamish. This is one beautiful part of the world! Mist, high forests, snow capped mountains, islands and sea.

Any day now I'll manage to put some photos on here!! Just for today I was suffering from pre race nerves but hopefully they'll transform into excitment!

Indeed, Ra Ra!! for Shona and we at the yoga lounge are wondering what time she is skiing today.. soooh here I am glued to the Bagel Co. tv after yoga......

What excitement you are all having! What fun times for you all! Thanks Wilma for keeping us pretty well up to date. If and when you know Shona's times please post!

Our writing group had a good time last evening but we missed you!

Cheers, and keep having the time of your life!

Hey, whats happening? no moonshadows for days now?!

Wilma, wake up from the shadows of Whistler and give us an update or two.

Congratulations Shona! on so many moments well spent representing Canada and yourself! We are proud of you!

I hope that you are all having a grand time and the rain is staving off.

Enjoy the last days of the Vancouver Olympics. from the soon to be Nepal trekker, Dyane
