Well I made it through another birthday not quite something to sing about but 63 and doing more now than ever before it seems. I believe I have finally accepted what life has thrown at me and once again found a purpose, for me that is huge.
I have been working with other concerned citizens here in town to stop a huge energy company from coming into our town and placing a very large LNG tank and pipes that will in time leak, into our rural as well as residential area.
In a time where we should be working to move away from fracked gas and oil and turn to wind and solar they pick our town, well for me they will not without a fight. Which means writing letters, attending meetings up in our State House and spreading the word to all who are ready to hear. Today I will go door to door passing out info on a warrant article on Tuesdays ballot, that we fought hard with a petition to get on in time.
I live in a town that is very apathetic and not many even go out to vote. I hope many will care enough to show up this year and vote yes to tell the PUC and SEC our little town says NO. It is hard when you are fighting a company with billions to pay to get their project through. We have one thing on our side there will be no weather system they can use for an excuse. 🙂
I have been teaching Watercolor privately and even taught 16 children the other day at our local library, this class was free and I bought the supplies for them to paint their masterpieces.
This Monday I have a student who is now a friend having me to her home to give a lesson to her and a friend, I am excited to show another person some magic. On the 22nd I can teach at the local gallery if anyone signs up for the class.
JT is still hanging in there with sheer will but I will lay her to rest by May I think, which is when she will be 13. I will be in bad shape when she goes but she has had a wonderful life and given us one as well and I need to do what I think is right. I am not sure how I will heal after this as she has been my world since I first laid eyes on her. We all know the pain of loss.
I will sign off for now in order to get ready to greet my neighbors I hope you have a wonderful weekend, for those up here Spring is coming!
