If you were unable to make our meeting Wed eveing, You missed wonderful Mediterranean style food. Our food committee queens prepared dates, hummus, pita bread, kibbie with garlic sauce, artichocoke dip, cheesecake, cornbread, roasted chicken, pumpkin and banaa bread...all so yummmy...now don't you wish you were there? Thank you Queens Laurie, Beverly, Erin and Renee!
Queen Allison, our technilogical guru, plugged us into an online interview with author Paulo Coelho. For those who wish to hear the entire 75 minute interview you can click here http://www.blogtalkradio.com/STATIONS/AUTHORSONAIR/TOPSHELF/2008/09/17/PAULO-COELHO-DISCUSSES-THE-ALCHEMIST
I was able to have high resolution photos made from his website that had some of his more famous quotes from his books. If you want to download them you can use this website http://paulocoelhoblog.com/postcards/
(or if you find another card that you would like to have printed our or a different size etc you can contact me)
The discussion questions were very insightful this time and I felt that I really needed to do some life refleccting journaling on some of them. Perhaps if I go on a retreat I will bring this with me.
