That old crackpot and his tribe in New Zealand must be disappointed that the world has not ended. Despite some minor volcanic eruptions in Iceland and an earthquake or two, a solar explosion, everything goes blessedly on, I am thankful to say. This gives all of us another chance to do better, to go on being what and who we are.
On that note, yesterday I attended a fun event. A friend from yoga, Holly Mosier, had a book party for her new diet and exercise book. She is an amazing person with perhaps the strongest will I have ever seen, transforming herself and her family into fitness mavens nearly overnight, and she has managed to do it while still being kind and to all appearances humble, a rare feat.
I am sure you will be seeing her book around and will see her as well on television interview shows and in magazines. She is intelligent, articulate, by profession a lawyer, originally, and beautiful to look at. She has crafted this book meticulously, and I am certain it will be successful. Good luck to her! She has made her own luck, I think. It's a lesson to me.
