Aday of remembering why we live in this community.....

I have so many things to be grateful for...just living in this community of wonderful people who care about each other and sharing the wealth of opportunities to others. Ken and I attended the Licking County Convention and Visitors Bureau's annual dinner at the Cherry Valley Lodge. The chefs went out of their comfort zones and shared some delicious snacks and tidbits to delight our senses. The dinner menu was superb and much improved under the new leadership. This was a moment to commend those who are working to bring more businesses and visitors to our county. Tonight my friend Marcia Downes received the first special award for her dedication to The Works and sharing the experiences for growth and advancement with enrichment for our youth here in Licking county. Marcia has been an amazing inspiration to us all...I am so proud of you and your contributions you have tirelessly given over the last 13 years with your direction of The Works. You make us all better individuals and inspire us to reach higher and focus on being the changes we need to have here in Licking County. Thank you!

I continued working on my holiday cards... and found out a bit late that there is a Holiday event in December that I think I would benefit from participating in ...but it might be too late to get registered. I have been invited to work on a very special collaboration with Art combined with Nature...I need more details but this could be something that could really launch my visibility as an artist. I am excited...intrigued... a bit overwhelmed ...yet ready to take a flying leap into the future. take care and yes we did survive last night's wild weather tour around my loved cabin!

The beautiful woman in the blue shirt if my new friend Pearl from England... she is father Bob's mother who has been visiting her son for the last month. She has blessed my heart just for the short time we had shared together. Pearl has a spiritual peace that radiates from her inner soul. I hope been blessed by her presence. Peace is contagious.
