Hi Adventure Philanthropists!
 
This weekend is Father’s Day – so a big time *Thank You* to all our fathers, brothers, sons, partners, and friends who are Dads.
 
While my father passed away 18 years ago, I still cherish our close relationship and have the fondest memories of him. One of my favorite happy memories was the time we spent together during our monthly Father-Daughter dates.
 
Each month, my brother and I had a day reserved to spend one-on-one with a parent. Any activity would do – sometimes we’d go to the ballet and sometimes we’d just go and get ice cream.
 
For much of my childhood, my father was working two jobs while getting his business degree at night. So the opportunity to hang out with him was precious.
 
This simple tradition of setting aside time to be together was such a gift, both as a little girl and now as I reflect back. Here's to all our cherished moments with Dad!
 
And now for the articles this week:

Photo of the Week > Magic of Stonehenge


Here's Stonehenge to mark this year’s Summer Solstice. Believed to be built about 3,000 BC, these ancient ruins were thought to have been a site of Celtic-Druid rites during the summer and winter festivals. The day I was here it hailed on me – in the middle of June in England = About right!
 
This past week in NYC was chock-full, full of work meetings and no time for getting together with friends. (Whah!)
 
I did manage, however, to find the time to sneak off to Lincoln Center for an Alvin Ailey dance performance. (Yay!)

Now if I can continue to mix a little fun with every work trip, I’m good to go!

See ya on the road,
