Dear One Worlders and Friends,
What luck to have met two beautiful fellow One Worlders yesterday during one of my rare sojourns (for 1.5 days) in Washington, D.C.! Susan Orlins, author, fellow One Worlder and Mom to One World co-founder, Sabrina Orlins, generously welcomed us into her gorgeous home. Susan, Jessie and I have been corresponding for some time, but this was our first meeting in person (do you think that I was a little nervous and excited?).
We even met Susan's famous four-legged family member (also in Susan's memoir), Casey!
And we made dinner in her lovely kitchen (we loved green counter, plush & lush pillows and her hand-painted backsplash tiles). Susan told us about her latest projects, including work as editor of STREET SENSE, the DC Metro Area Newspaper committed to transforming lives. We were inspired by her commitment to social issues, and her outreach work. Bravo, Susan! You can order Susan's memoir by clicking here.
Jessie Lutz told us a bit about her studies at university, and I shared a bit about my trip to Monet's gardens in Giverny, France (more on this later). Just off to the airport! Thank you, Jessie and Susan, for sharing your stories with us, and for making my D.C. stop-over so special.
Meanwhile, we'd like to extend a warm welcome to new One Worlder Melissa Yeung, CCI Board Member, to our global community. Looking forward to hearing your stories!
