A Sara Hickman eNewsletter for September 15, 2008
This season's hurricanes left devastation for untold thousands who are already dealing with poverty, and, now, many families who are dealing with it for the first time. I ask that you consider helping those affected in the South, Cuba, Haiti, and the Turks and Caicos Islands. Whether financially or through volunteer work, thank you for making a difference in the lives of others.
And while we're talking about the affect we have on helping others, I'd like to share an overview of universal world facts. I encourage you to click on this link to my blog. I promise: it will only take you three minutes and you will be amazed at what you learn.
May there be peace wherever you are when you receive this newsletter.
I was in yoga the other day, and I was thinking, "If only we had international yoga day..." We'd all be peaceful, lean, and, yes, sweaty, but a little sweat can move the world!

What a busy time this has been...school starting for my daughters,
The 12 month/12 city tour of Texas to start the dialogue about the death penalty has only two more events--our event in Waco this month (with the fabulous Austin Lounge Lizards!), and our big finale on October 1 with Kinky Friedman, Mayor John Cook (El Paso), Shelley King, Jon Hogan, me, and possibly, the Lizards, as well. If you can, please come out and be a part of this dialogue---hear great music and amazing speakers, share your thoughts, and taking in the photos of Alan Pogue. This has been a very emotional tour, and I have learned so very much. I hope we can all sing together as we bring this tour to a close.
Lastly, I'll be performing with the Teton Orchestra in October, and the Dallas Wind Symphony at Morton Meyerson (Feb 10) and again for their Sweetheart Swing event on Feb 14! If you like orchestras, and I know you do!, come on out as I have my songs orchestrated AND I perform jazz to dance to! All very exciting, you can bet your bippy!
