My great friend Kelly Green has been involved in the non-profit world for all of her adult life, working with the late great Ed Schwartz at the Institute for Civic Values among other things. She's also a great connector creating a group called "Damsels in Success" which brings together a diverse group of professional women who can spend at least one night a month letting it all hang out in the safety net of friendship. This week Kelly thought it would be a fine idea to release a Sky Lantern in honor of my birthday. So after dinner - with a group of puzzled diners as witness - we lit the sky lantern against the picturesque backdrop of the Roosevelt Mall. Check out the fun because “A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though she knows that you are slightly cracked."
