Answering two questions before grace note:
1) Yes, you can join Summer Camp any time, any call. We’ve only just begun. We’ve got almost-daily inquiry sessions until August 7th. Sliding scale, come to one, come to all of them–your choice. Come no matter what you can pay, really. Everyone is welcome here.
We’re questioning thoughts that drive us crazy or bring us sadness or suffering. Life-changing work.
2) Peace Talk podcast is on itunes and the episode on Competition is released….Peace Talk is a short 5-10 minute talk 3 times a week about peace, thought, reality, inquiry and grace. I’d love to hear if you’ve ever had fun with competition in your life, like the story I share in this episode 73.
Thank goodness I stopped by the lodge where Being With Byron Katie starts on Saturday.
We were doing a quick tech check.
Just a short drive-by to make sure all the gizmos talk with one another, and we can easily connect via internet.
Beautiful big screen, check.
Lovely space, check.
Actual connection to TV screen via my computer, not check.
The host gets bags of wires, cords, plug-ins from a closet.
We’re unplugging and pushing things into the side of my laptop. Nothing fits. You can see the hole sizes already, they will not be working. Male cords, female cords. Nada.
I call Apple.
Over there, my husband is working with the house-owner to hook up a test ipad for an alternative (which doesn’t work) and I am on the phone forever as the help center caller finds what kind of computer I have using the serial number, and locates a photo of the HDMI doo-hicky that needs to plug into it.
I am truly on the phone for an entire hour.
I order some kind of part, adding $18 for practically-emergency fast delivery.
My stomach growls.
The woman at the computer help center says “hey, I see your email so I looked at your website just now and I used to work at the Stress Management Center of America!” We wind up having the sweetest conversation ever about her five years in employment there, and the benefits of stress reduction.
Even though, I’m like “OK, that’s great and NOW I have to go!”
But I just can’t find a problem.
It seems like I should.
My husband and I aren’t at dinner until 9 pm, and I’m starving (I think).
But it’s fun, adventurous, and entertaining.
And we’ll have a working Big Screen with Katie on it starting on Saturday.
What could be more fun than that?
