Dear Hopework Friends,

John and I invite you to join us for a Hopework supper and story circle on Sunday, October 24, from 4:00-7:00 pm.

Last month's Hopework supper and circle brought out a record crowd of new and familiar faces. We moved the table out of the way and created a circle of 20 chairs. We balanced plates on our laps during the meal, and then held mugs of coffee and tea as we shared our responses to the images "driven to discover" and "strolling toward understanding." The distinctions around the families of words that were discussed and our relations to them were rich and exciting!

This month's topic is fall. It's such a wonderful season this year! A friend brought me a bag of Honeycrisp apples that we enjoyed fresh, baked in a tart, and sliced with peanut butter. We've had a couple of quarts of fresh apple cider. The leaves have glowed especially beautifully-- or maybe it's just that we've been blessed with so many beautiful clear and sunny fall days! My experience of this fall has drawn me to want to hear your memories of times that express the essence of fall. What favorite memories, traditions, and loved ones surface for you when you think of the season of fall?

Date: Sunday, October 24, 2010.

RSVP: Please let us know by Saturday night (10/23) if you and any
guests plan to attend. Call or email if you have any questions. I have
room for about 12 people around the table (and at least 20 if we move it out of the way!)

Time: Arrive at 4:00 pm (3:00 pm if you would like to be on my cooking
and setup team). The meal will begin at 4:30 pm.
We usually finish telling stories and cleaning up about 7:00 pm.

Menu: Bring a dish or a favorite beverage to share. I'll provide a
main dish (usually vegetarian) and will make coffee and offer an
assortment of teas.

Topic: Fall

For those of you who are new, Hopework is the practice of creating
spaces for people to get to know and like each other and to find
renewed hope and purpose with and from each other. Hopework' suppers
and story circle evenings are 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 Hopework friends,
Philosophy Camp/Lives Worth Living alumni and fellows, and making new
friends and acquaintances. This year we will meet on the 4th Sundays
of most months. Please join us when you can!

Future dates: 4th Sundays of most months: November 28,  (skip Dec.)
January 23, February 27, March 27, April 24 (last Hopework supper
until September 2011).
