I was so excited to take your course but reality set in today. With all my
other obligations, this will have to takewa backseat.
So I am withdrawing form your class. I will do this again sometime or work
locally with Judy and James..but since it is brand new to me, with my
current full time work and graduate school schedule, I can't give this the
attention it deserves. I'll be in Thanks,
