Happy 95th Birthday Melitas!

Today was a very special day here in La Quinta, California.  My very special student, and fellow blogger, Melitas Forster turned 95!  The day started off with a special birthday greeting from the  Channel 2 news morning team.  That afternoon over 50 of my students and friends of Melitas joined together for a special surprise happy hour party for her.  I was thrilled to have been a part of this joyous occasion.  Those of us who have the privilege of knowing Melitas are very blessed.  She is definitely a one of a kind individual.  I am a richer person for having known her…so cheers Melitas, I look forward to having a drink with you very soon!photo (72)photo (73)

  1. Sorry I couldn’t be there for your birthday, Mena. But I know you had a lot of good friends and hopefully family there to celebrate with you.
    Love you,

  2. It was good to hear your voice this morning. I am glad that you are doing well. We are now all settled in here in Durham, NH.

I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
