For the first time since last February, when I came across Sharon and she agreed to help me through this process, Sharon and I have been unable to make contact for more than a couple of days... I realize now how important immediate feedback is in online facilitation! Nertheless, I also recognize a new stage in my development towards autonomy as a researcher/writer:I keep writing, knowing I can do quite a lot on my own, confident, reassured.... When Sharon comes back, I may have to undo a bit, but who cares???
