I took this photograph a couple of years ago when I visited a botanical garden in Sarasota, Florida. I thought I might paint it one day. I haven’t done that yet, but these beauties are certainly worthy of capturing in oils on canvas, aren’t they?
I am writing today to thank the Minister, Doug Long, and Congregation of the Umstead Park United Church of Christ in Raleigh, North Carolina. I was blown away by your thoughtful and loving reception of me, and of my recent book: What Is Consciousness. The quality of your listening, questions, and comments during the Forum was inspiring. Thank you also for bringing a box of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies to pass around. I loved it!
I say “yes” to more of that!
I also enjoyed the service. I was able to go twice–once at Christmas, and again just last week when I spoke. Both times I came away uplifted, renewed, and centered in compassion.
