    Hi David Thomas, I’m an editor of a newsletter for Quakers who have mystical experiences, called What Canst Thou Say? (WCTS). We are gearing up to publish an issue in November on Trials and Temptations, and this story about your family’s burnout is something I’d like to be able to offer to the editor for that issue. Many of us who read and write for WCTS are liberal unprogrammed Friends, but we would love it if you would feel free to share your experience and your reflections on it with us. Consider it a standing invitation to write for WCTS, David, but this piece is the one that prompts me to write for permission to reprint. Blessings on your work,

    Mariellen Gilpin
    Coordinating Editor, WCTS

    It is so easy to over commit and literally run ourselves ragged. I am so glad you are recovering and finding a healthier pace. God will bless your ministry
