My husband is leaving for Madagascar in mid-October, this time he'll be gone almost six months. We're sad around here. A lot of tension, some excitement, and a lot of tears.
One of the saddest things is that he's going to miss my Grand Prize winnings from the Red Room Housewarming Party contest. Since the dinner/night in swanky hotel will happen almost a month after Madagascar Man leaves, I need an escort. I thought about hiring a gigolo. ( Anybody know where I can get one? Nah, me either.)
I have a number of friends who I would love sharing the evening with, but how to choose? So I've decided to do it another way -- a writing contest.
Would you like to be my escort? Simply tell me why, in 100 words or less. You don't need to be a writer, and gender doesn't matter.
Who ever escorts me will attend dinner at Michael Mina in San Francisco on November 9 with me, Terry McMillan, Phil Bronstein, Jennifer Gibbons, Ivory Madison, plus their respective escorts. (You will be my Escort, not my Consort -- hotel room not included -- Madagascar Man will be on the other side of the globe but still in my heart.)
Send me the reasons why YOU should be my escort to Ericka@ErickaLutz.com by October 15.
And in other news, I'm starting a new course of study, a six month mentorship program with none other than the woman I call "my wise woman." I'm excited, nervous, and ready for this new direction. By the time Madagascar Man comes home I should be so evolved. Check out my reading list:
Tantra: The Path of Ecstasy -- Georg Feuerstein
The Tantric Quest -- Daniel Odier
Desire -- Daniel Odier
Yoga Spandakarika -- Daniel Odier
Kundalini: Energy of the Depths -- Lilliane Silburn
Focusing -- Eugene Gendlin
Space Cruiser Inquiry -- AH Almaas
And I'm outta here -- off to the hot springs for a little woo woo time and a little writing time. Back Saturday. Ciao!
