Coming Up for Air!

What a difference a month makes.  Being on oxygen has greatly improved my sense of well being. I had 2 infections that are now over. Off antibiotics. Last month I thought "this is it" and was okay with that. Now I feel like I don't know what is next. My birthday is next week - which a month ago I did not think I would see!!


Wednesday I actually went out to a meeting for 2 hours. One that I had set up with the Police Chief and the immigrant community. They had asked to meet and share their thoughts with him. I was really happy to see it happen. Thanks to a great team of people finding a space, making treats, available to translate if needed. Some good plans begun to make this an even better community. Courageous leadership all around.

And I think we will get lights for the Wednesday evening soccer games - the last game was often played when it was nearly dark as summer passed the solstice. Some of our Indivisible members are going to work on local businesses of Clatsop county to make their shops and stores bigotry free. Helping everyone feel welcome and safe is our goal.

Sadly our current national leadership is not helping.

It is energizing for me to see people taking on projects like this.
