Dear Anke

Thank-you for your kind words and wishes. I am very happy to know that you cared enough about my work to cross your fingers through this review process and I am most grateful that you invested your personal energy in responding in this forum to let me know your thoughts.

I am relatively new to EJOLTS but I must tell you that I was drawn to your published paper earlier this year because the title of your paper stood out as it was about rebuilding the relationship your sister. I was intrigued about how a person might write and present a research paper about something so entirely personal and I was not disappointed. I read your paper at that time from beginning to end and it held my attention the whole way through. I thought it was a wonderful inspiring example of how Living Theory action research can be used to make a difference and to finding a pathway to the bigger picture in life. In your self study you put a real effort into living your values and committed yourself through self reflection towards changing old patterns and I don't imagine for a moment that it was easy. I could also see from your writing how much you valued your critical friend Moira who appears to have assisted in opening a safe space and place of clarity in which you were able to challenge your assumptions and decipher what you were in fact learning from the action you took. It struck me how much Moira really listened to where you were coming from and with such sensitivity. I am also most grateful to Moira for her attention to reading my paper and her voice in this review process.

Schönen Dank Anke and I hope you don't mind me taking the opportunity to tell you about my experience reading your paper!

Best of luck to you and your sister in the future!

Best Regards

Deirdre
