Gail's Benefit and Sorry St. Patrick

Well, it's been 5 days since my last post....wait this sounds like a confession!!

I've been sick and the mind has been blank,I hope all that visited in the past few days were able to craft some nice Shakesperean Insults. I totally missed any celebrating on St. Patty's day and as I'm part Irish that in itself is almost a sin , maybe this is a confession ....

I did however make it to the Benefit for the Tanzanian Hope Fund...Awesome turnout, a great time and I think a big success...A lot of mouths will be fed. The entertainers were wonderful and I can't wait for the next one...Kinda wish Gail could come back and speak about her work over there..It would be great to give her a hug too.

Reading a book by Deepak Chopra titled "The Return Of Merlin" I've never read anything by Chopra but this seems to be pretty good so far...the following really parallels my thoughts exactly:

" What society thinks of as reality is the hypnosis of social conditioning, an induced fiction in which we are all collectively participating. It is the melodrama of a humdrum existence, filled with trite obsessions and trivial pursuits, wherein our only fate is to be born, grow old, and die."

"If we could just realize it, the keys to the miracle of life lie in our own consciousness."

"Life will bestow miracles on us when we begin to see it as an expression of the miraculous. Life itself is a miracle. We are here now---that is a miracle"

Okay, can't give you the whole book but I'll let you know what I think of the rest!!
