Ever throw a party and no one shows up? I spent about 3 hours this week setting up the Friday night 2 hour HeART of Spirituality & Creativity workshop. I thought of EVERYTHING, paint, canvas tarp, plastic aprons, set out name tags, cut paper for the journals . . . 7 RSVP’s, 7 places neatly arranged with hand-outs, glue sticks, pens, pencils, paper towels . . . even cut the lemon cake I bought for refreshments . . .
6:30 start time and no one is there except me. 6:35 the first participant, Rachel, arrives. Rachel and I chat. She’s says the traffic was really heavy. I check my phone messages. . Rachel and I chat. I check my e-mail messages. Rachel and I chat.
I’m starting to think that the typo mistake I made on all the hand-outs for August 9th wasn’t a typo. Rachel leaves at 7:00 pm. I eat the lemon cake.
See you all next Friday, August 9th at 6:30 pm . . .
(Turns out I had sent Rachel an e-mail confirming August 2nd – Rachel is always on time)
