# 197 - Andrea Henry is On Purpose

Andrea Henry

Lynn Thompson, host and producer of Living on Purpose, has a 12 year long (and counting) routine of sharing The Heart Cards as she travels about ~ one of them was received by the boyfriend of Andrea Henry, and he told Lynn that his girlfriend Andrea is a singer songwriter, so Lynn went one step further in also sharing her Living on Purpose calling card to give to Andrea.

Following many months of sporatic email communication, finally in late November 2012, Andrea and Lynn managed to meet in person when Lynn was visiting Toronto from Ottawa ~ on an evening that was mild enough for them to record a brief conversation outside, that includes a sample of Andrea's awesome singing voice!

The serendipity of creative collaboration and general upliftedness continues to flourish with further musical connections in the wings, and all because of a spontaneous sharing of one of The Heart Cards!

And now you know about it through the Living on Purpose podcast series on the Rabble Podcast Network, which I hope inspires you today to contribute to the value of all things Rabble by visiting

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
