Heather Elliott has just sent me an email which I thought might be most
useful to send out (I hope you don't mind, Heather). It reads (in part):

Subject: RE: Hi!
....Glad to hear BNIM is going well - I have talked it up where I can - it
was so fascinating. Frustratingly I have not had the chance to put it into
practice since the course (although I am enjoying the discussions on the
list). Woul d be very interested in contributing to group analysis panel,
if you ever hear of anyone needing input. I would also love to be involved
in any BNIM projects - I'm hoping to make room for some freelance research
alongside the other writing in the next months....
If you have an idea, do contact Heather direct.... Tom

Just wondered how you were, whether you're still at the OU, and what you're
doing? BNIM is advancing quite successfully (especially in Ireland), but
Prue is withdrawing a bit to concentrate on her MA in creative (poetry)
writing, which she's really loving. Anyway, when you have time, to drop me a
line. It would be great to have your news.
