STARTING TODAY


Today I invested in my lazy side.  Talked to a friend via phone.  Wrote a few emails.  Texted a lot.  Slept in and then took a nap.  Heading for a sunset photo op with Julie, my new Maui friend.  And eating our pie that I bought for Pi Day but we were too full of pasta to enjoy last night.

Yet I've been doing some thinking about how I want to spend the next ten years.  Probably because the birthday is heading my way.  This year I will finish out my tenure with Three Rivers Village (while I live in Oregon) but 2016 I need a new passion.  I'm not sure I want to spearhead the Village Movement here in Maui but maybe I will.  We could sure use help.

My neighbor friend belongs to two different groups, Neighbor Helping Neighbor and a smaller, grassroots effort whose name I don't remember.  Angel Ohana?  The NHN group is partially a County-funded program and I just visited their website.  I think this will be the place for me to start.  It sounds a lot like a Village concept.

Wish me luck!  I'm sending them an email today.

  1. Sounds like you've almost got some things sorted out in your head. It also sounds like you've ready made up your mind to split your time between Maui and Oregon. Things like that can keep us up at night.

    1. NOTHING seems to keep me awake these days. Thank goodness for melatonin.

      As you know, I've changed my mind a million times so let's just see how this newest scheme goes. Kids are almost moved out of their tiny apt!

  2. Stay involved in those kinds of thing--I think it is good for you. It wouldn't be for me, but it is for you. :-)

    1. I think I like this volunteer stuff because it keeps me learning new things on the computer. Today I sent in all the forms to volunteer here on Maui. I will sign up for a new Share the Ride program in Oregon. Transportation is the thing my parents and my mother-in-law missed the most.
