Life lessons used to be transmitted from one generation to another through stories. While the internet-age has connected people, we are only concentrating on the here and now. Hindsight is needed to help us move forward. PRIORITIES… is about understanding what is essential for each of us, as individuals. Like reading someone’s journal or having tea with an ‘auntie’, PRIORITIES… is filled with stories about the good ol’ days and how people coped with difficult situations. PRIORITIES… was not written to give people answers. It was written to make people think: about the choices they – as individuals, or couples, or families – need to make to evolve and move forward.
Author_Bio: Ms. Stuart-Grimes is a self-proclaimed scientific tree-hugger and rational thinker. She was raised in the suburban New York City region, attending public primary school and private high school. She attended a small women's college in New England (when these were still affordable options for one's children) then moved to New York. Her mother – who was always occupied – turned her benevolent work into a full-time job in marketing and the organization of major public events. Her father was an executive with one of the major international public relations agencies.
