Today, however was about sharing a talent or skill, clothing, books, teaching how to do something. It was a wonderful day to share, chat with others to learn more what they were doing. I enjoyed the couple who were teaching people how to make pancakes and banana bread using solar.

Jennifer was showing people core strengthening excercises, as Wendy and I watched her we were building up a sweat.

Wendy is from the city of Palo Alto – talking about the new composting program, that many residents don’t know about.

Kathy Bibby, who was doing hand massages with oils.

There was a table of give aways – I picked up a few canning jars..been looking for those for awhile. I guess I had better get started canning. Books, magazines plants, lamps, hangers, fabrics, balls of yarn and nick knacks.

Since I’ve been learning more about Tapping – healing my own pain..I shared this with a few people. I was grateful to the people who let me practice on them..sharing Robert Smith’s Faster EFT videos. You know what it was harder than I thought it was to show someone else how to do it. It was all good. I’d Love to start a tapping circle.

It was a fun day!

I know I spoke to my UU minister and he said, it would be great to have one at the church in the fall.. This is a great idea..I hope you will consider of having one too!
