Happy New Year folks! Sorry it has been hectic here, has I continue to settle down and me life new again in the Midwest.
Has many of you have been following my progress with my fight with Cancer, things have been progressing really and treatment is progressing as well and keeping the disease in check from spreading, so far so good, which is making me happy and keeping my lease on life intact as one!
2017 was another interesting year to say as the last few weeks of 2016 were the strangest days of my life, as I left home for a life elsewhere in the country and being away from my family, friends and a volunteer career that spans for more than thirty-years to the communities I loved and shared my knowledge and experience with through the years – evidently, I haven’t actually “retired” from public service yet and still have some years left under my wings and more.
One of the hardest parts about living far and way from those you love and worked with for so many years, has a new meaning in life – “strange Armageddon”. I’m still learning the history and the story of life of where I live now in the Midwest, even though, I’m experiencing my first severe cold winder! Lat year was mild has it was like in the Pacific Northwest, but this Winter is sure a wallop of a winter, which doesn’t mix very well with my cancer treatment as my fingers and feet tingle and spike big time, when the cold temps get into those famous Arctic Cold Winters, that many experience in this part of the country.
I’m hoping 2018 will give me more time to write and blog as well as continue on the many projects that have been put on hold since I left the great PNW… Hope everyone has a wonder New Year and a safe 2018 as well…!
