Creative Sisterhood

Tonight was Creative Sisterhood and it was a great evening. My topic for the night was about my session with the energy healer and how positive the experience was.

Martha was telling us that she recently had the opportunity to hear Newt Gingrich speak and was impressed with his theme regarding "Real change requires real change." It seems so straightforward and yet it does seem to be a concept that's difficult for people to grasp. That if we want to really change our society, we have to be willing to change what we're already doing.

She and Diana had both been to see the energy healer so we had some conversation about those things, too.

It was a really good night. They're always good, but some nights are just really exceptional and tonight was a really positive evening. It seems hard to imagine that my life did not include these monthly gatherings until a couple of years ago. I'm so very glad to have these women in my life.

Teresa mentioned the photos from the Petrified Forest tonight. I'll try to post some more photos from the Route 66 trip soon.

I made brownies again tonight. I was just really in the mood for some chocolate, and everyone else seemed to be too, so it was a good choice. I've posted the recipe here before but in case you missed it, it's below. It's one of my favorite recipes. It can be mixed up quickly when you're having unexpected company.
