Dear Sara, 
Greeting to success for you 
thanks for keeping us updated and well-informed  the  years, I have 
grown so used to your name in my inbox! Good luck on your new path 
and remember: you can take a woman out of the feminist movement, but 
you can never take the feminist out of the woman. I bet you will make 
wonderful buildings in which the design of toilets and kitchens makes 
as much sense as the design of the office spaces..Donot forget to us 
and specially my views
 warm greetings, kiran sigdel
