We are saying goodbye to Kelowna this morning, after yet another wonderful summer visit. Since leaving Goldman Sachs in 2002 we have been coming here and it truly has become our family tradition. This discussion around the dinner table last night was whether we were going to set up a full-fledged fruit stand next year or continue with an overturned apple bin. Soon I will take one last walk with my dog Sunnie around the perimeter of the property, throwing apples from the ground for her to chase and stopping at the raspberry bush to pick her a handful. I am blessed indeed.
Be sure to pick up the NYTimes this weekend and watch for the magazine section. I am told it is all about women! This essay by Lisa Belkin features Women Moving Millions and the Womens Funding Network. The main piece, I understand, is about the new book to arrive September 8th by Nickolas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. I am honored to know these fabulous people and I cannot wait to read “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression to Opportunity for Women Worldwide.” Be SURE to pick up a copy and right a review for them on Amazon. Change is happening. Positive change towards gender equality. It will be the force that changes the world for the better. I know it.
