I met a friend recently in a restaurant where the water glasses had a line at the mid-point and above the line it said optimist and below it said pessimist. Very clever, I thought.
"No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an unchartered land,
or opened a new heaven to the human spirit."
- Helen Keller
I am heading south today to spend the night with my son and his wife. Tomorrow, Jane and I will speak in Pacific Grove about Breast Strokes so that will be fun, and then, I go back to Jeff and Jan's for another fun night with them. Friday, Saturday and Sunday I will be at a retreat center in the Santa Cruz mountains with a group of around sixty women. It looks like a beautiful place to become more clear on my next steps. My glass is full.
I am slowly beginning to post on the Breast Strokes Blog. You can check it out at:
