What a super day! I met my friend the fabulous artist,
Sally Chupick, who is the owner/curator at the Gallery
at the Porch Door, just north of Kingston, Ontario at the hotel
where she was staying at in Toronto.  There was
a fire on the upper floors of the hotel just before
I arrived.  It was under control when I got there,
and this is what's so special about Sally.
The only thing she was worried about was me!
Plus she is so positive that she suggested we go into
the hotel bar on the first floor and have a coffee.  We did
and the conversation was exciting and fun -- the fire not
even part of it. 

I marvelled at Sally's positive attitude when I got
home.  Her kindness and optimism fit perfectly with
 the talks I've been listening to in the free online Hay House
World Summit.  A key belief of Louise Hay is that
our thoughts can change our lives.  I am a major
believer in that idea.  And I've listened to so many
ideas today about how to get closer and closer
to the ideal life I envision.  But as Mike Dooley
would say, I already am living the life of my

Today I listened to the amazing story of Anita
Moorjani, who had fatal third stage cancer,
whose body had shut down, and the doctors
declared dead.  In her between death and life
state she had a clear vision of her father who
was dead, and decided to return to
life and within weeks she was cancer free and
back to vital health! Very inspiring.  Like the
Irises in my garden.
Have a loving-the-life-you-lead day.

Hi Sally,

Thanks so much. I fixed it. I have no idea how that happened. You are also a blessing in my life. I think your gorgeous smile will do it all at the gallery.

Have a super time until I see you again. Soon I hope!
