Fire in the sky!

Fire in the sky!

Oh the places you’ll go ……..

When I drove out of my driveway in 2005, did I know all the places I would go, imagine the people I would meet, the adventures I would have? Not in my wildest imagination! However, I am happy I went, took that first step into the unknown. In 2005, my CT book club group gave me a paperweight: “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” I never considered the possibility! Take that verve out of your pocket and use it.
Due to recent changes in ongoing health issues plus a few new ones, it is time to leave my travelin’ lifestyle to others, and there are many of you. Experiencing this energetic land of ours through the ability to volunteer at Sheldon Jackson College, AK, Heifer International, AR, Arnold’s Wildlife Refuge, FL, Menaul School, NM, Russell Cave National Monument, AL, Vote Smart, MN, plus my NY home at my local library, LWV, PD Support Group, and others has “been a trip”. Getting out and giving back is what it’s all about. So, I pass the baton.
Parkinson’s update: Must, unfortunately, resign my responsibilities as President of the Capitol District Parkinson’s Support Group. However will participate when I can. All are welcome on 2nd Thursday each month. Please support funding for neurological disease research.
                        Be safe, smile, and enjoy 2017,
                                                Barbara 💝

Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you. Anthony Bourdain
