HOPE

I have always had it, but after last night, I am bursting with it.

Hope.

I had the honor of hosting Hope Edelman in my home last night to help promote her book, The Possibility of Everything. It was a night filled with old and new friends, laughter, sharing, and hope/Hope.

I urge you all to read the book and to see Hope if she comes to your city. If you'd like to be on her mailing list, please let me know and I'll give her your e-mail addresses so you'll know of her schedule.

My favorite of favorite moments was when Hope "came out." She told the story of sharing with a friend her spiritual journey and the friend said, "I don't think you're a cynic. I think you're a mystic, disguised as a cynic."

The disguise if officially off now, and as Hope shares her mysticism with us, it is an honor.

"A mystic, disguised as a cynic." Love it! And love The Possibilty of Everything! Glad your night went well.

It was a truly magical evening, full of hope and possibility and the company of amazing women. Thank you, Carrie, for being such a generous and gracious hostess. I love the picture of the two of you.

How fun!

Great great picture. And I loved that too, about being told she was really a closet mystic, not a closet skeptic.

Wish I could've been there!!

Beautiful! I wish I could have been in that room. Something tells me it would have touched me.
