Life Changing Magic ... Of HOOPLA!

   

I had THE BEST compliment from a patron recently. He said that telling him about Hoopla changed his LIFE!  That’s right folks!  I thought to myself, well we must spread the good news!  Recently I listened to an amazing audio book by Amanda Palmer about “The Art of Asking“on Hoopla.  I do not know if you’re anything like me but the dinner making, laundry and dog bathing waits for no man. I am usually not still enough for reading. I am always on the move. Always cooking, driving, and all the things!  So I LOVE Hoopla. In her audiobook, not only do you get to hear her reading and listen to some of her music, you also get to learn about her husband, Neil Gaiman. Through this audiobook, I became a fan of both.  Such a talented couple with such great creativity. Amanda has always asked her fans and audience for what she needs, and they are thrilled to rise to the occasion. I like the message about giving the blessing to others of receiving the gifts they want to give you. I do want to warn you Amanda is a fan of the f-bomb . I was listening to this book when I was desperately trying to pick up my dog’s cremains. I had a ceremony and a locket to give to my husband and it was going to be awhile before I could arrange for all the stars to align to do the ceremony. The flooding in town made me run late. The vet’s office would already be closed.  My husband really wanted these cremains.  I was listening to the book and I just thought, “You know what? I'm going to go, and if I can catch someone, I'm going to ask!”  So I pulled up and asked my newly met veterinarian if there was any way and he ran right in and got them for me. I had tears in my eyes when he gave it to me and I had to hug him. I was so grateful. He gave me the gift. All I had to do was ask.
