the path of the sage must become the path of the hero

Funky roller coaster of life.


Yesterday had some crazy dips and valleys, but there were a few things that were pretty high-flying and awesome.

First of all, with some help from my father, we cleared out the storage unit I rented since our move in late May and early June. No more rent bills for storage. Yay! Although we now have yet more boxes to sort through, I don’t think they’ll be too much trouble and I am relieved to free up a previous reoccurring expense.

Second, I was asked to step in to narrate a church Christmas program. The woman organizing it, calling me by phone mid-day or so, said that someone had to cancel at the last minute, and she thought of me because of the quality of my voice. Wow! Of course, I said yes. My voice was something I worked a lot on growing up– mostly to hide my nervousness and fear when talking on the telephone. Although it was still short notice, I happily agreed to come to the dress rehearsal that evening. I didn’t get a chance to practice my part, but I still enjoyed helping out with the stage setup and with other technical stuff.

The program is this evening. Right now I am making some soup for lunch, before I go to my therapy session.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.
