Future talk

 A world of plans

There is something so endearing about
young people like the wonderful guests
tonight -- so engaging, so passionately
involved in life, so funny and so with
it.  This beautiful girl showed us a slide
show of her trip to Korea and India that
blew me away.  She is studying among
other things, Hindi at university.  Awesome.
Her friend is a musician.  What a talented
bunch.

Have a loving-the-company-you-keep day.

Do you know Barbara, I feel exactly the same way. The young people I am in touch with are wonderful and they are bearing up so well and with so much humanity to the challenges of living in the 21st century. Great sketches by the way, fresh and endearing.

Hi Sheila,

Thank you so much. It is always inspiring to see passionate people of any age. But perhaps especially young people at the start of the whole road, who have already done and seen so much. You and I still have the fever to keep learning, and that's certainly a big part of happiness.

Happy New Year to you my friend.

XO Barbara
