Hello Peter and Congratulations on the Creativity Cafe!

My name is Donna Pinto and my friend Lee Silber has just forwarded me your
e-mail correspondence w/him. Lee & I have been brainstorming ideas to open
a "creativity center/cafe" here in San Diego and I was excited to find your
website. We're are all sharing in this magical idea of an inspirational
creative environment for like-minded souls to hang out, learn and just be
who they really are.

I am the author of an inspirational book called "Life's Lessons: Cheatnotes
>From the Classroom of Life." I have also recently returned from a 20 month
honeymoon around the world with my husband Glenn. We are giving seminars on
"How to take 'time out' to work and travel abroad" through the Learning
Annex...check out our home-made
Glenn and I also worked at several Club Meds about 10 years ago and have
had a book-in-progress along the same lines of our seminar to encourage
Americans to open their minds and their hearts to creating world peace and
experiencing what they really want in life.

Inspired while traveling through the beautiful island of Bali, I envisioned
a place which I called "Get Inspired," a cafe, bookstore and more, where
like-minded souls could hang out, learn and meet others. When I shared this
dream with Lee Silber, (who by the way, is an incredible speaker and all
around great guy), we began brainstorming further and he too had a similar
vision and even sketches of a similar center.

We are at the research phase, looking at possible locations for such a
center and determining costs and fundraising avenues. Do you actually have
a physical center in San Francisco? I would greatly appreciate any insight
(what I call cheatnotes), you may have regarding opening an actual retail
cafe/center. San Diego is even more in need of such a place -- it's a bit
more conservative than SF and very spread out. Not sure where the ideal
location would be yet.

Anyway, it is nice to have crossed paths with you and your website. I wish
you the very best and congratulate you on your "Creativity Cafe." We have
so much in common. Let's stay connected and help each other fulfill our
dreams. The world needs people like us!

Warm regards,
Donna Pinto

P.S. Glenn and I would love to do a talk and slide presentation of our
travels at one of your events. Check out some photos and published articles
on our website!
