Being Moved

This is how I felt after seeing Prem Rawat for the first time, back in 1972. And I still feel this way...

The Impact of Prem Rawat

Woman reaching for star.jpg

Two years ago, Prem Rawat (aka Maharaji) came to my little town of Woodstock, NY and spoke to 350 locals. Instead of me trying to describe his impact, here's what eight people (most of whom had never seen him before) had to say about it:

Deborah Cohen
Barbara Schacker
Evelyne Pouget
Richard and Mary Ann Erickson
Ron Brent
Ilfra Halley
Mary Jane Fahey

The Woodstock Festival of Thanksgiving

A musician friend of mine is organizing the First Annual Woodstock Festival of Thanksgiving Concert on November 30th and is asking for people to send him "gratitude themed" JPGs for a slide show he is putting together for the event which is going to include the entire community and spark an international "gratitude movement." Got something to send him? Email it to Marc Black (Blackmkt1@aol.com)

There Is a Contest I Want to Enter

Mitch 1.JPG
There is a contest I want to enter, but I cannot find a pen. I want to win something big when my name gets called, mount the stage and, in a heroic attempt to speak before tears have their way, thank God and anyone else who might be listening to this moment of pure exaltation.

Words rise within me, bubbles from a newly opened bottle of champagne, but I say nothing, stunned. I just stand there. Grinning.
