March may come in like a lion 
and go out like a lamb, 
but April comes in with the lyin’ (April Fools) 
and goes out with “I CAN” (Pay it Forward Day).

It’s also National Poetry Month, so I’m honoring the sonnet with a stanza of my own.

April is the time for renewal. The first quarter of the year has passed, so it’s a great time to make course adjustments. For me, this means looking more deeply into who I am and where I’m going. I want to continue to be out in the world, connect with everyone, and make a difference. Since my trip to Africa and because of some recent healthcare work I‘ve been doing, I have decided to expand what I do to partner with clients in global healthcare, public policy and philanthropy.

“The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.” – Harriet Ann Jacobs
