Namaste, Andy
Andy,

I agree that the answers don't matter as much, but I believe the questions matter.

Got it, Andy.

P.S. According to Byron Katie's twitter feed, she and her husband, Stephen Mitchell, had lunch with Eckart & Kim, & some other couple, on May 16th (in Santa Barbara). To celebrate her 8th anniversary.

Maybe they talked about what they had in common......

Or maybe they just sat in blissful silence, eating sausages. :)

Yes! Or a minor tiff over how to split the bill.

I can see it now, Eckhart insisting on paying all of it, BK standing up in a huff, taking the bill to the register, and upon arriving there, discover that Stephen had just bought the restaurant and it's on the house, meanwhile Kim tipped the waitress $100...
