How ANEW Began

To quote Robert Frost, “Two roads diverged in a woods, and I---I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” I was traveling down the road to starting anew before I even recognized the path I was on. A road that was filled with valleys, hills, and detours, all of which was preparing me for ANEW.

Lucy is still in training. Needed to repeat the course as she thinks everyone who enters the office is there to play with her. Seems to never meet a stranger (or intruder). In fact, the more people in the office, the happier she is.
