Dear Hopework and Philosophy Camp 2008 friends, The last few mornings I have been sitting at my dining room table with my paper and coffee looking out my windows early enough to see the sun¹s red glow emerge behind the trees on the horizon due east of me. I watch the brilliance of its rays pierce the filigree of branches as it rises, until the whole red ball appears to balance on their crowns. Monday¹s equinox announces the official start of Fall and reminds us that the luxuriously long days of summer are over; the hours of daylight and darkness are balanced now, but we will soon be rapidly moving toward the long, dark nights of winter. Last week¹s warm weather was a delightful gift of summer as we transition into the new season. The hectic start of the academic year is over, and John and I are eager to invite you to join us for a new series of Hopework suppers on the last Sunday of the month from September through November (September 28, October 26, and November 30) and January through April. Usually about a dozen people gather for a supper to share food and each other¹s good company. Hopework is the name that John and I give to our work. Hopework is the practice of creating safe spaces for people to get to know and like each other, and finding renewed hope and purpose in life with and from each other. John and I host a pot-luck supper on the last Sunday of most months as a way to reconnect with friends who have shared in our work and to meet new acquaintances who share our interests. Each month we look forward to greeting new and long-time Hopework friends, Philosophy Camp/Lives Worth Living alumni and fellows, and other friends and acquaintances who share our interests. Please join us when you can! The topic of health is on my mind?multiple dimensions of individual and social health. This year, I would like to explore a series of topics generally related to health, depending on people¹s interests. I¹ll begin next Sunday by asking, What dimension or aspect of health is most often on your mind? Date: Sunday, September 28 Time: Arrive at 4:00 pm; meal will begin at 4:30 pm. We usually finish and clean up about 7:00 pm. Menu: Please bring a dish or beverage to share. I¹ll provide a vegetarian soup or main dish and water, tea, and coffee. Topic: Health. What aspect of health is most on your mind? RSVP: Let us know by Friday if you¹re planning to come so we have an idea of how many to expect.
