Yes, the ideas in the above paragraph are something that I have been thinking about. I do want to write an essay entitled Running with Horses. It will be about running with each of the horses. Their story will be embedded in it. I will do this, right hip permitting. It is seriously tweaked. But for right now, it’s Tinni and me on the roads and trails. Giddy up. That’s the term I use when the endorphins kick in.
I also thought some about the Bright Lights Book Project. I’ve been preoccupied about its future. It now seems to have a life of its own. Bride of Frankenstein; this an apt metaphor, as in, it’s alive! Bill and Pete are sorting on Saturday at VCRS, and three volunteers (Nan, Lois, Sierra, and Sheila) are assisting me on Tuesdays and Thursdays at The Meeting House, categorizing, cleaning, and getting books ready for distribution. This week the haul consists of books from VCRS.
The Mat-Su Health Foundation grant funds are now available –Pete and I just went over what previously was our wish list. The money is spent.
Pete is a good money manager. He’s directing the monetary orchestra, and it’s playing loudly. Yes, as he just told me, the computer and printer will go to VCRS should the project fold.
There’s a book in what’s happening with the project. I’m rehearsing what I’ll write, in my head. Sara, Pete’s sister, said she just read a book that reminded her of what we are doing here. Gad Zooks, I am going to have to order it, along with Susan Orlean’s book on the subject of libraries.
Agility – I am now working on getting the dog and pony show up and running. Last fall we purchased used dog agility equipment. Soon, we will dig it out of the shed, and, obstacle by obstacle, put it in place. Pete is wanting to add on to the existent shed so we have more covered storage space. And we are talking about doing some landscaping – he recently purchased more lilac bushes and wants to plant them on the hill adjoining the Playground of Higher Learning.
The day has begun. I am following it down the road now, full tilt boogie.
