Enter The Circle

December 20, 2010

I’m very excited to have officially been interviewed for the first time today!.  Don’t laugh but I’m giggling a little and my face is a bit pinker than normal.        Go take a look if you have nothing else to do at Enter the Circle.   Do a search for See Michelle Cook.

While living in Hoboken NJ, I would make my daily visit to Frank Sinatra park (Frank Sinatra grew up in Hoboken) with the girls and Linda had 2 girls very close in age.  Right away she walked over to me and said “Hey! how’s it goin?” ,  “What’s your f*()*& name?  and can you believe &^%% did that??”    “What do you think of this f%$#$ weather??”

I loved her and we connected right there and then.

Before the days of thinking a blog was a nasty stagnant body of water with creepy crawlies which I now know is a bog, my friend Linda was waaay ahead of the curve.    I remember being in awe of her writing abilities and creativity but still didn’t really understand the purpose of writing into what I then thought was the internet oblivion. Did she really think people wanted to read  her every day thoughts and opinions?

Well as it turns out, she was on to something.  Not only was she on to something but she was good. Linda writes articles, books and facilitates workshops that help women more intuitively connect with and embrace their power.  She does it well and she’ll make you pee a little doing it.

Where Linda and I are connected forever though is 9/11.  When Steve was trying to find his way home after the first tower was hit on September 11 2001, my friend Linda was my first phone call.  She took over and helped me breathe.    Go and follow her and you can thank me later for the big refreshing breath of air you get.    You’ll laugh out loud and wonder why you didn’t say that instead of just thinking it.

She also did something that everyone talks about doing but rarely does.   She wrote a book.  Confessions of a self-help junkie. It’s funny as shit.  Go in and buy it or have it downloaded instantly to your computer.

Now I have to go and dig out the Christmas cookie cutters.

    Aw shucks, Michelle. Funny I don’t remember cussing that much, but I’m not surprised that I dropped an F bomb during our first meeting. 🙂 I have to say, when I think of Hoboken, I think of you, Steve, Josie and Alex. Good times. Good F%&$ing times.

      Your F bomb was such a relief for me. Everyone else in the park either had their heads stuck up their arses or they were a nanny. Good times indeed.

    Well that is very cool. I did not have a chance to read this before I left, but finally got a chance and you are like a celebrity now! Can I have your autograph? Also, I enjoy reading your blog, it helps me keep in touch with you and not miss you as much. Is there a way of easily printing out just the recipes?
