Once I got started I had pages of research, with many background notes for my own use. I found this exercise so valuable! And reading others entries have so enlarged my understanding. What a super idea this ‘contest’ is! ~ Barbara Kathryn
Winner Month 2
It is time to announce the winner of month 2 of Almine’s Caribbean Treasure Hunt. In this second month enthusiastic people could again enter 3 treasures they found in Almine’s material. This time something that dovetailed nicely with:
Presenting yourself as less than who you really are, in order to gain the acceptance of others, keeps both you and them on the treadmill of mediocrity.

After putting all the names of all the entries of this second month on pieces of paper they were added to the names of the first month. Randomly picked from a top hat, the winner for this month is:
Grace E. from the United States! Congratulations Grace. You’ll go on to the finals where a winner of the cruise with Almine will be picked from your entry and two others!

For all those who entered, your name stays in my top hat. Enter again this last month and your name will be in there twice or even three times!
Assignment Month 3
Here is the assignment for month 3. Find something within Almine’s materials that dovetails nicely with the following:
Do not accept the world’s messages of aging. Do not accept their idea of how old you should act or be. Glow on in agelessness.
