I know you’re all heard her unusual voice on VXU, doing some of the best – and certainly the most civil – interviews around. What I’ll bet you don’t know is that she’s gorgeous in person, much younger than she sounds, and has a charming and teasing presence at the podium.
Woman’s City Club of Greater Cincinnati brought her in to speak, and the event was held at the ever-astonishing and magnificent Wise Temple downtown across from the Cathedral and City Hall.
A lot of her talk was about the importance of our listening to each other, deeply listening – and then she told wonderful stories. One about Tom Clancy, another about Newt Gingrich, who walked out on her yesterday!, stories about all kinds of movers, shakers, writers, thinkers. She also talked about her dis-ease, the vocal chord problem she lives with.
When her throat started bothering her, I started doing distance Reiki on it. I’m sure the water she drank helped – but I’m giving credit to Reiki for the scratchiness settling down.
All in all, one of my favorite kinds of evenings. Beautiful weather, a beautiful venue, an interesting and talented speaker. An evening to be grateful for!
