My mediation schedule is filling, I'm working with great lawyers on fun cases, and we're getting things settled. Yesterday, everyone walked out smiling. Smiling!! It was a real win-win deal--how cool is that! Then at night, I met with lawyers on the brink of trial and I'm waiting to hear today whether we can get that one resolved. I have only a few others that haven't settled---YET! I absolutely hate to give up and continue to check in with everyone by phone. Meantime, Thursday, Holly and I drove to Champaign where I met with 20 wonderful representatives from the Chinese Ministry of Justice. I gave a 2 hour presentation. Every sentence had to be translated but everyone was laughing and having a great time. They gave Holly and me beautiful presents and invited us to visit. I loved it. Notice to lawyers and judges all around the world: If you invite me, I will come!!!!
