Dear Hopework Friends, Greetings in 2013. I hope the New Year finds you healthy and doing well. Today seems like a good day to send an invitation for January's Hopework circle and supper. I watched Obama's second inauguration this morning while working out and am working at home in preparation for tomorrow's classes. The new year finds me with many new beginnings on my mind, even while I am still working to finish up projects that are ending. January's Hopework supper and story circle will be held Sunday, January 27. Our topic remains sharing how we are navigating our journey in the flux of life. In the context of the constant change and flow around us, we rely on a variety of devices to guide our decisions and actions as we live our lives. We often must often make decisions "on the fly" and often with little certainty of the outcome we desire or knowledge of how they will affect others. Life sometimes presents us with endings to accept or new beginnings to live into, whether we wanted them or not. Other times we find ourselves motivated to bring about something new or put to rest what we are ready to leave behind. Join us and watch January's still-full moon rise from our east-facing windows about 6:15. The new moon, which wanes soon enough, has been associated with endings and letting go of attachments. As we begin a new year, perhaps there are also endings to be made and letting go to do. For January's circle, I invite you come with a story of an ending or new beginning. It might be a story from the past that has been important. It might be a change that is in process now or anticipated in the future. What might be said to be closing or opening? How might the change affect you or alter your journey? What do you hope for in 2013? January Hopework Supper and Circle Date: Sunday, January 27, 2012. RSVP: Please let John or me know by Saturday night (12/26) how many plan to attend. Call me at 612-710-7287 or email if you have 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, depending on the size of the group. 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. For those of you who are new to this invitation, 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 evenings are a way to reconnect with friends who have shared in our work and 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 welcoming new friends and acquaintances. We meet the 4th Sundays of most months. Please join us when you can! New faces are always welcome. 2013 dates: February 24 March 24 April 28 Lynn Englund and John Wallace The Metro Lofts 2650 University Ave West, #315 Saint Paul, MN 55114 Map and directions: http://tiny.cc/FkhvY Lynn 651-646-0069 (home) 612-710-7287 (cell) BUS: Take the 16 or 50 bus to "Berry Street."
