I would be pleased to see your own ideas and thoughts as soon as possible, so that we would like to pray for you to go to heaven
Oh no! I don't know what could have happened to the first disc. It said it was recording. I kept checking. I am so hopeless when it comes to technology. I am better than I used to be if you can believe it. I broke down and bought a cameral for the trip and it was an adventure trying to take pictures. I am terribly sorry. That was a good interview too and because I was on the camera I didn't take any notes. Did you fast forward to see if it is further in on the disc??
Thanks for your kind words. I missed you at the closing too. I looked around for you but didn't see you. It was so crowded. That will be great to do some planning together with Helen. I caught up with she and Don prior to leaving.
Again, I am so sorry about the film and I just hope that you find the tape there somewhere. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Glad you made it home safe and sound!
Deb, hi! So glad to hear from you and know that you enjoyed your reunion! I sure missed you at the Closing Plenary. The Opening Plenary somehow seemed so much richer with you around. Indeed, so much to share and yet to process.
Sorry I didn't get a chance to chat with you by the murals during lunch. I was talking to Kathe Schaff about the North American Women's Network possibilities and had to squeeze everything in the limited we have. Thanks for remembering the interview with Ian Gawler. It didn't happen. No worries. I'll connect with him in other ways.
One piece of bad news though, the first disk of interview of Dr. Chandra appears to be blank. Agh!! Any idea why? So I only have the part where Dr. Chandra begin talking about the spiritual pillars. . .
I'll be back in Seattle on 12/23. Talk to you then or soon. Helen took your mural back to Portland. Hopefully we'll be doing some regional planning with her.
We have been experiencing rain and sun, so a light jacket will be good as well as a cotton cardigan if you have one. It can get cool in the evenings, but short sleeves during the day outside. I don't know how agressive they are with their air conditioning in the Convention Centre, so layers (light jacket or sweater...)
