FOUR THINGS TO ASK A STRANGER (almost a parody)

Welcome to Mary Anne Radmacher's blog.

One way to get to know a person you've just met is to ask them to tell you about their favorite friends. It's said that a person essentially becomes an aggregate of the five people with whom they spend the most time.

There's another telling question to ask a stranger. It's all about a book.

1) Is there one book that you have re-read and will read again (and again)?
2) What is the most recent book that you've read and what stands out to you most?
3) What is the title of a book you recommend most often to friends?
4) What was the last book you read that made you so sad when it came to the end? (Because you wanted to keep on reading, not because the ending was sad!).

If the person you are just getting to know has never re-read a book, can't remember what stood out from the last book they read, doesn't recommend books to friends and has never felt sad to stop reading an excellent book...

I suggest that you stop conversing with them. And, perhaps, run. Kidding (not kidding). Perhaps you might consider striking up a conversation with someone else that you might want to get to know. AND start THAT conversation off by recommending a book you've recently read...

Womanhood Success Summit                    Give Wings to Your Dreams
November 8 - 9, 2013, Friday/Saturday at the Embassy Suites SeaTac (Tukwila, Washington)
This one-day event is designed to help you “Give Wings to Your Dreams.” Bring your “Someday, I’ll…” and “I’d love to, but…” and leave with a practical plan and an inspiring visual to help your passion and purpose take flight. Immerse yourself in a full day of information, inspiration, and innovation that will help you move toward experiencing more of what you want (and less of what you don’t want) in your life.   Optional pre-event mini-workshops (all complimentary…because that’s just how we roll) will be provided on Friday evening. Look forward to power-packed topics focused on organizing, Feng Shui, relaxation, energy management…oh, and soooooo much more.   Explore topics including (but certainly not limited to):
How to tap into your heart’s calling while using the power of your mind to pursue it,
Creating unprecedented momentum for achieving your goals,
Designing powerful systems and structures that set the stage for less stress and more success, and
Using simple strategies for having fun in the process (because doesn’t it just make it a heck of a lot more enjoyable?).
What’s not to love? The event will be hosted by Deanna Davis, PhD, author of The Law of Attraction in Action, Living With Intention, and Laugh, Cry, Eat Some Pie, and Mary Anne Radmacher (author of Live Boldly, Live With Intention, and Lean Forward Into Your Life). Davis is known for her characteristic blend of humor with how-to, and Radmacher is lovingly referred to as our resident “inspirator.”   The registration investment for this event is $147, which includes lunch (and so darned much more!).   Register Now to join us for this powerful event.   We look forward to helping you “give wings to your dreams” at this year’s event.

9:30 -   5:00 with lunch on your own
In the day you will explore proven,  low tech and technological techniques for gathering, capturing and creating cohesive written materials; begin the process of identifying the primary result areas of your life and create a measure that helps you say YES to the essential things; generate a physical system that becomes your personal curriculum for cultivating  qualities that matter to you; in a fun and secure way, ask questions that are significant to you and your process.   I make these kinds of investigations safe, effective and fun!

Monday, November 11, 2013  AN ARTFUL LIFE (creativity is not just for professional artists!)  9:30 - 5:00    With the inimitable Luna Jaffe at 7837 SW Capitol Hwy, Suite C, Portland, OR  In the  sweet core of Multnomah Village with many great eateries available for the lunch break. 
In this artful day I will guide you to discover your unique   PERSONAL SYMBOL*; you will  walk away with a functional  “decision deck” and the knowledge of how to “art it up” in your own time;  you  will create (gasp, even those who insist they are not “artistic”) a beautiful gift-card that will be sent to a Veteran in a Wounded Warrior program.  AND you will learn a three-step process to enable you to create lovely, balanced artful embellishment. This process translate into artful applications in many of your life experiences.                                                  (* recent symbol participants said: Ann Ellinger  Ann E.(GA) Eye-opening, intriguing and fascinating. I loved the experience (the workshop) and then seeing my personal symbol emerge through the process. Totally cool! And absolutely accurate!   Rachel D-B (PDX) Part of me wished I'd never created art before, just so my first time realizing I was creative could have been under the care of this lovely, effervescent woman. She just has a heart of gold, and the experience to lull your inner critics into quiet encouragers. and from a professional author and poet, Auburn M. (AZ) ...the best I can do is to say that it changed my life, and that ... finally ... I know who I am.
