My dear friend Kathryn invited me for a birthday lunch last week. We sat outside in her spectacular garden, ate a deliciously prepared macrobiotic feast, then went inside for her gift to me, a session of healing touch which she’s been studying.
In addition to being nourished and nurtured, Kathryn also inspired me with her description of an Omega Institute writing class she had signed up for. What hooked me was the enticement to the workshop provided by the instructor. “When people try to write stories they tend to drag the stories behind them,” says writer and cartoonist Lynda Barry. Rather, this inspirational teacher said, she wants writing to feel as though you are being pulled on water skis.
I was instantly struck by the power of that metaphor. Planning my Create Your Own Future preview party had exactly that feel. From the moment Laura Newman, my PR coach made the suggestion, I’ve felt as though I were being pulled by a speeding motorboat. It’s been an exhilarating ride as opportunity after opportunity flew into my life–Artifact, the spectacular venue; the women who are co-presenting with me, the interest of the press and the 70 women who have signed up to attend.
