How full can a life be?

I am moved and settling in to my new digs. My eldest daughter is married and in Cancun with her new husband. I'm recovering from the whirlwind 4-day wedding weekend in Houston and the two seven-hour flights to get there and back, and from the heady thrill of being able to sing James Ingram's "Give Me Forever (I Do)" for their first dance....not a dry eye in the house!

Now I'm jumping in with both feet to prepare for the workshop I'm participating in with members of the Integral New York City Salon at the end of the month, a first-time ever collaboration between integral salons on both coasts, and a little bit of "who cares" integral history. I care.

What a remarkable event! Leaders and participants of two salons on opposite coasts, uniting to present an all day integral event on "Art As A Transformative Practice." Go here and here to find out more about the event and the presenters. I love that we keep creating new paths, new opportunities, and new models for the integral approach!

In addition, I am in the process of designing the jacket (book cover) for the re-release of the book Don Beck co-authored with Graham Linscott, The Crucible: Forging South Africa's Future. This fits right in with a personal goal to serve the integral community with my design abilities. Imagine talking to someone about your graphic and presentation needs that you don't have to teach a new language!

Hmmm....what will I do with my spare time? Oh, yeah....Help create the first local Integral Spirituality group and group processes for the ILP Home Study Kit.

God, I love my life!
