      Wish you did, too, Maggs! It was a fantastic event! Consider organizing and planning one up there!

        Hmmm…cool idea. I’ll present it to my writing group Wed. night to see what they think.

        If you guys are interested, maybe I could talk to the organizing group over here, and we could work on sister cities and sister events? That might be -really- cool.

        Wow! REALLY COOL! I’m going to call my writer-friend Margaret right now to see what she thinks. Awesome idea.
        BTW, I like that you call me “Maggs.” Another very dear friend of mine also calls me that. Love it.

        Melissa, on second thought, our active group is very small. We are limited in our scope, and only this week are going to learn how to create websites. This is probably premature for us, but I would like to keep it in mind for the future. Thank you for your offer. Could we leave it open?

        Perhaps think ahead towards next year and March, which is International Women’s Month.

        And if not then, whenever you guys feel ready to take it on. No rush at all. If there is interest and if you want to keep an eye toward it, just let me know so that I can whisper the possibility to folks here. We would never hold you to it but in the event that it does work out, what a wonderful fruition of many dreams. 🙂 We’d have fun!
