January 1, 2015, Prescott- Bet you thought I’d never catch up. Well, the Moveable Feast that was 2014 is a springboard to endless possibilities, this year. I said farewell to several friends, family and admired public figures: Norman Fellman, Richard Keffer, Bill Warden, Steve Archambault,Brooke Bohner, Dane Mc Donald, Ginny Stobie, Helen Fellman, Howard and June Moxham,Bob Wittmann, Mardy Taylor, Norman Hansen, Mary Chrisos, Jack Harper and a few of whom you may have heard: Pete Seeger, Eli Wallach, Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall, Edward Herrmann, Joe Cocker, Luise Rainer, Bob Hoskins, Christine Cavanaugh, Phil Everly, Dave Madden, Jack Bruce, Ann B. Davis, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Shirley Temple, Johnny Winter, Mickey Rooney, Sid Caesar, Paul Revere, Maya Angelou, Ruby Dee, Ralph Waite, Mike Nichols, Joan Rivers.
They have each moved on, and are in the Gallery, cheering us on, as we navigate the challenges before us. My path forward, this year, will soon come to a fork in the road. One turn would take me to a full-time position with a non-profit. Then, my free-lance travel will be limited, but I will be constantly on the road, making sure Disaster-Preparedness programs are in place, throughout northwestern Arizona, and that volunteers are receiving training, and are feeling appreciated.
The other turn would lead me to work as a substitute teacher in more schools than I am, at present. It would also continue my going to such places as I sense the Universe wants me to go. The one constant, on both paths, will be my using, and educating people on, essential oils. These have made a significant difference in my life and in my health.
So, stay tuned. 2015 will be another tumultuous ride. It started slowly today, with a few errands and a young friend’s birthday. Tomorrow, I visit and hike with my son, in the Phoenix area, and head up to Las Vegas, for a visit with friends and to Valley of Fire, on Saturday & Sunday. Then, it’ll be time to get serious again.
