I think what strikes me most -much like any bond of unconditional love between animal/human, is the gentleness of care that I imagine Ms. Hepburn exuded when she cared for Ip (or any of her pets, she had a dog too). As an introverted person, I have always found comfort in nurturing and caring for pets. Growing up my parents bought me a dog, we had cats, I would rescue wounded birds and animals and nurse them back to health. It’s so tender and sweet to imagine Ms. Hepburn out and about -living her life, with this cute little sidekick.
All of this experimentation has me brainstorming ways to host a monthly cooking party with friends. Something like we all explore a different flavor or type of cuisine (an appetizer, breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert item) and get together to talk and eat and listen to music, has anyone had any success attending cooking gatherings or even taking a cooking class?
Chess pieces each have their own unique paths of movement on the standard chess board, along with their own value. The highest valued/ranked pieces (Queen) and lower value pieces (Pawn) each play an important role when trying to beat your opponent. The names of all the Chess pieces are:
1. Queen 2. King 3. Rook 4. Bishop 5. Knight 6. Pawn

my audience, have you ever “quit” something, only to get back into it when the time was right or you were more prepared and ready? What was it, what did you learn and how did you feel?
