My beloved friend Olga hosted a Gathering of Women today.  It was more than a networking party because during “circle time” each woman was given the stage to talk about herself and her immediate goals.  If a listener had recommendations or leads for the speaker, she wrote it on a piece of paper and presented it to the speaker after everyone had a chance to speak.

I humbly thank Olga, Margie, Frances, Kim, Theresa, Neva, Jana, Mary, Chandra, Pat, and Pamela for lovely foods and such beautiful energy (and the marvelous advice you gave me to further grow my business!). Nadia, thank you for hanging out with us. My wish for every woman in the group is this:  May you summon the kind of vibrance you shared with the group today when you yourself need an energizer.

  • Hey, Teresa dearest,
    Had a wonderfest of great yak as usual, with all the women of creativity and intellect who really know how to have a good time in conversation! Thanks to you , Olga, everyone. I look forward to the next time.

  • Dangerous Women

    We are the dangerous women…
    Who never say no to sunsets, sunrises,
    Evening strolls or double martinis.

    We are the women who speak to you
    In supermarkets over apples and cabbages.
    Making you wish you could follow us home.

    We are the women taught by mothers,
    To make you feel we could be yours
    No matter what your age, color or size.

    We are the women who seek
    Extraordinary days out of the ordinary
    Leaving aches and joy and empty spaces.

    We are the women who write poems
    And send you copies without permission
    Capturing moonbeams in your name.

    We are the gatherers of dreams,
    Fantasizing scenes
    In private places where secrets live.

    We are not easy to be with
    After sad movies, romantic novels,
    And on Sunday afternoons.

    We are so damn demanding
    You wish we had never met,
    Yet you know, we are the poetry of life.

    We are the dangerous women: vulnerable,
    Ageless, poetic, passionate, living life with two feet
    Slightly off the ground.

    We are the women you should avoid
    If you don’t believe in Peter Pan, Never Never Land
    And the first star of the evening skies.

    But pour us wine, as the sun sets low
    And we will hand you the key
    To our inner souls.

  • Beautiful in it’s truth, truthful in it’s beauty.

  • Thanks Teresa for leading us in this wonderful gathering!

    Thanks Olga for inviting us to gather at your home!

    Thanks to everyone for your sharing and friendship! I am thinking good thoughts for you and looking forward to the next time when I will hear about your successes.
