Inspiring thoughts, ideas and information provided by women business owners.

The purpose of Keystone Women's Circle is to unite, support and promote women business owners. A keystone is the stone in an arch that binds all others in place. In a circle of stones, every stone is a keystone. We believe that together we can create a foundation, not of brick and mortar, but of relationships and mutual support, enabling all of us to prosper.

I recently returned from a most wonderful trip to a place called Holden Village in Washington.  The Village sits in the Cascade Mountains and to say it is a remote location, is an understatement.  To spend a week without phones, computers, TVs radios or cars, brings one a sense of peace that I can not put into words.  So many times I find myself caught up in the rat race of life.  It seems so cliche to say that, and I did not think of myself as living like that until I was blessed with the opportunity to take a step back and live the simple life.  Now I realize how busy we all are and that there is an urgent need for us to make time to take a nature walk, play a game of cards,write a letter,or sit with someone from another generation and listen to the wonderful stories.  I am so very lucky to have been given this opportunity and will cherish the memories and make it a point to live a bit of the "Village Life" right here in Belle Plaine.
