> 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).
