Exciting NEWS!

Of 3,500 applicants, Lisa was one of 350 selected to attend the inaugural On Being Gathering (with Krista Tippett and many other teachers and luminaries) for three days at California’s 1440 Multiversity, in February! She is thrilled to be going and very excited to share what she will learn. She was able to get a generous scholarship for the the cost of program, too! YAY.

  1. Hi, Lisa:

    Chip MacG mentioned your blog so I’d like to subscribe. A little new to the blogosphere, I wasn’t sure where to click to become connected. Can you help me?

    Also, I plan to start a blog myself soon, so I have enjoyed looking at yours and how it’s organized, etc.

  2. Sorry ’bout that. It’s auto-generated. If you get a Gravatar, it’ll put that in. I don’t think you’re mad, sweetie. :)

  3. Thank you so much for coming. WELCOME. Also, consider adding this site as a bookmark in your browser, and check back often.

  4. Hi, John Acuff mentioned your blog and I figured, if he likes it, I might like it too. He was right. Also, nice to find a fellow blogger from the Pittsburgh.

  5. Great to see you here.
    I checked out you’re blog too.

    I hope you’ll come back often and contribute your thoughts.

    I’ll be heading to Murrysville soon, and getting my Western Pa emotional tank filled up.

    Take care!
