Many of you have already been moved to the new system, and
started to receive emails that you have wondered about.
You have been moved and started at the beginning, even though
many of you have been members for years, a refresher of the

are getting the most from your membership.
If you are a CFP member and have paid your membership fees
and an email did not arrive, let me know or opt-in yourself
below to the
new CFP database. Everyone who is a CFP member needs to

by Lucia Gorea
Through My Soul
is a collection of love and mystical poems that reflect my continual search for
emotional and spiritual truth, a search for sublime and perfection. This
an incursion onto the many paths of the unknown that invites to meditation and
contemplation. It is my tireless journey onto the avenue of human existence.
These verses transcend times and life to penetrate into the depths of my soul,
posing many questions that long for answers. They are the music of my soul.
