We lost a beautiful light and force on this planet last week. Adelaide Finkbine Hixon was 101 when she passed and was nothing short of the Grande Dame of my Love League. Since I was eleven years old, she has been a source of wisdom, laughter and a swift kick in the pants when I needed one. She was an extraordinary philanthropist, who was passionate about early childhood education. Adelaide's list of philanthropic credits is miles long, but I love the twinkle in her eye behind the writing program she started with her husband Alec at CalTech to help scientists convey their ideas to the rest of us folk.
In the photo above, as we waited for a play to begin about 4 years ago, she had just uttered this hilarious sentence "Opera is the television of the 1880's!"
Here she is in her one and only visit when she came to my new home for lunch. I had only very recently gotten settled here, but she was so excited for me she wanted to come as soon as I would have her. She was my champion.
We shared a passion for flowers and butterflies. I always brought flowers which she would inspect in great detail ("Is this from your garden?" "What's this one here?) and deeply inhale their aroma as if she were ingesting their deliciousness. Whenever possible I would bring her a special butterfly find too. This is one of the wind-up butterflies propelled by a tightly wound rubberband. It delighted her so when it flew up high and then landed on her blanket. I couldn't help snap a photo of its synchronistic lavender butterflied landing strip!
This podcast is a love letter to Adelaide with excerpts from Supehero of Love: Heal Your Broken Heart & Then Go Save the World that she inspired.
With love from Bridget...

Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton were at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles on November 6, 2019 hosted by Book Soup as part of their book tour for The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.
Bridget casually recorded some snippets on her iphone and was moved to share them her. She sought and received permission to share them in honor of these two Superhero of Love authors who celebrate over 100 Gutsy Women who also happen to be Superheroes of Love.
Brilliant interviewer Maria Shriver led the conversation through heart territories that some had never heard about before, and led to Hillary giving some hints about another possible presidential run.

One of the most often mentioned books in the Superhero of Love Podcast is the NY Times Bestseller (for three years!) The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield.

Today it is reaching a whole new audience including rappers Jay Z, P Diddy, Wyclef Jean who name it one of the books they live by, becoming again a book that isn't staying on bookstore shelves.
James talks about a new passion for enneagrams which you can explore further with James Redfield article "THE SECRETS OF THE ENNEAGRAM: KNOWING OURSELVES"

Yet another synchronicity comes into the Superhero of Love world. Bridget was watching a YouTube video and the next video that YouTube automatically played -- on a topic completely unrelated to the one she was watching! -- was on Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI's). Bridget did an interview with Jerri earlier this year but visited her home for another quick conversation about synchronicity, love, making a difference in the world and TBI's.
EMMY winning director Jerri Sher's new movie, QUIET EXPLOSIONS, is inspired by Adam and Andrew Marr's book Tales from the Blast Factory and follows the stories of several people with traumatic brain injuries who are being helped by some medical miracles now available to TBI patients.

Dr. Christopher Hartnett has had billion dollar businesses, owns the largest pink emerald on earth, and brought VOIP technology to the world. Those are a mere few of his long list of extraordinary credits. His greatest mission, though, is the one he speaks about in this interview: to help people become Soul-Realized.
Dr. Hartnett studied for decades with masters of self-realization including Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, but an extreme physical condition brought him to Master John Douglas in 2008. After many years of suffering and searching the globe for someone who could heal the illness that caused him to endure over 29 week-long hospital stays and countless surgeries, Master John performed the miraculous cure for which Dr. Hartnett will forever be expressing humble gratitude through his service.
This interview was taped on September 11, 2019 and Dr. Hartnett talks about how an intervention by Maharishi saved his life on September 11, 2001, and also about the consciousness of the world on that day and since.
For many years, Dr. Hartnett has been "in the business" of helping people raise their consciousness, and the consciousness of the planet. You will hear his passion for Master John in this interview and his excitement about the free global call with Master John Douglas LIVE from Sydney on September 28th at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET. For call-in information for that call, click HERE.
Dr. Hartnett also mentions the October 27th video events featuring Master John Douglas to be held at over 30 locations around the globe, is available for registration HERE!
