I make a mean mix cd.

HOPES AND DREAMS

That unicorns are real. But if they’re not, I hope that everyone everywhere has the ability to harness that type of magic for themselves.

HIDDEN TALENT

Mind-reader. Mm hmmmm.

HOPES AND DREAMS

To inspire women to step into their power! To share the art of collaboration and practices of self-care. To hold space for a dialogue of difference. To travel the world for a continually renewed perspective. To write a book.

The Universal Consciousness (or, Mechanicsburg, PA)

HIDDEN TALENT

Knowing the melody to a song the first time I hear it.

HOPES AND DREAMS

In my life and in my community, I strive to use my words and voice to educate, to praise, to shine a light, to question, to craft, to encourage, to love, to keep going.

I hope for continued community-driven conversations. I dream of poetry parties.

Williamsport, PA

HIDDEN TALENT

I’m not trying to hide my hands-on creative problem solving. I know how to decode IKEA instructions. I can eat an epic sandwich with minimal mess.

HOPES AND DREAMS

 

I hope that we can all be more present and be gentler to ourselves and others. I dream that I am late to a party and can’t find anything to wear.

Membership Master

Pittsburgh, PA

HIDDEN TALENT

I studied Opera, which people seldom believe. But it’s true. I can sing Opera in several languages, though I don’t speak any of them, so I have no idea what I’m actually saying.

HOPES AND DREAMS

My biggest dream is that my kids, Harry and Maisie, will grow up to be kind, hard working people. And, I still have a small hope that I’ll be a starting major league shortstop. Mostly because shortstop is just a cool word.

Brooklyn, NY

HIDDEN TALENT

I can identify the make and model of maybe 80% of the cars we all see everyday on the road. Why? I really don’t know… Also, I love trains, and can hold a conversation about commercial aviation as well…at least on the passenger airline side.

HOPES AND DREAMS

To help build this endeavor into the first stop for fellow transplants to the area. Also, I sort of want to buy a flat in London, but that would require winning the lottery I think…
