This one is for my local readers. Recently, I mentioned I had signed up for a one hour, free, writing workshop with one and only Rita Geller. Rita is my dear friend (30 plus years working out together at Tamarac Fitness Center) and taught in Broward County for 36 years. After retiring, she became an adjunct professor at Broward College.
While out with a friend at Panera Bread in Coral Springs, Rita made a connection with one Dr. Jack Cassidy, who runs the Coral Springs Medical and Dental Senior Center. Dr. Cassidy is putting together a schedule of workshops for our community seniors and if you find yourself in that plaza, you may want to stop in and pick one up. Perhaps there is something on there that will peak your interest. I will be attending Rita’s free writing workshop on Friday May 28th at 11 am. I am so excited for this, as Rita and I have shared our love of writing for all these years. I don’t have a schedule of the workshops in front of me, but Rita may be able to shed some more light on what’s going on there, in the comments below.
The animal spirit, oracle card that has been popping up a lot for us in this house, is FLAMINGO SPIRIT. This card is all about living in the in between. Yesterday, I had several conversations with past students of mine who miss our group classes. They are hesitant to try something new. I assured them that THAT was great, and THIS will be great, too! The past is behind us and the future is still ahead. We need to leave them where they belong and fully dive into the now. We don’t always have to have certainty and that’s OK. We just find balance between, like the flamingo, and savor NOW.
My now is a swim, then off to Feeding America for our monthly delivery. This afternoon I have an appointment to help someone with their nutrition and fitness.
It’s been over 13 months since my career came to a screeching halt, but I must admit, I haven’t had a single day of boredom yet! When you ask those 4 questions enough (yesterday’s entry), all the answers are right there. Once you know the answers, you just do more of that!
