Hi, Lynn. Dang, I forgot to rsvp by last night! May I still come, same day? My cell phone # is 612-750-2334--could you let me know if it's a problem? In the day's theme of surprise, I don't yet know what I'll bring to share.

Invitation: April 17 Supper and Circle (Lynn Englund) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Message: 1 Date: Mon, 11 Apr 2011 23:53:00 -0500 From: Lynn Englund <lynn [at] hopework.org> Subject: [Hopework] Invitation: April 17 Supper and Circle To: Folk School Folk School list <Hopework-l [at] hopework.org> Cc: Hopework-L <hopework-l [at] hopework.org> Message-ID: <A93EF1F4-3152-4492-A073-2A5C19394DAF [at] hopework.org> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; format=flowed; delsp=yes Dear Hopework Friends, April's supper and circle is a week earlier than usual to avoid Easter. Please join John and me for the last supper and circle of the spring this Sunday, April 17, from 4:00-7:00 PM. I haven't yet thought of a topic, so you'll be surprised by the question. March's story circle asked participants to share something about an experience of a freezing or thawing in life. In the moving stories that were shared, I heard how freezing stops us and thawing starts us up again. The images I took from the stories that stayed with me include: Those who bring light and warmth to cold (social) spaces inspire us. Anxieties have a chilling effect on us, and anxiety crystalized puts us in a sudden frozen state. Competition can freeze. Compassion and friendship thaws. Comparisons with others may freeze us, but recognizing one's accomplishments thaws. A thaw may seem elusive when we feel frozen. Working to integrate and merge frozen and liquid states of being results in slush, at least for a while. A sudden freeze triggered, for example, by the loss of a job can have a chilling effect, but may help us emerge stronger from having survived a period of cold. Risking a move to a wintry (foreign) climate may find us stronger in the spring. A powerful earthquake can generate a destructive tsunami of a flow! March Hopework Supper and Circle Date: Sunday, April 17, 2011. RSVP: Please let us know by Saturday night (4/16) how many 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 (or at 3:00 pm if you would like to visit and 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 my assortment of teas. Topic: To be decided by Sunday. 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: Suppers will start again in September 2011.
