On a Hill in North Beach at Sunset

5:56 PM. San Francisco

One of the few occasions that Sally and I had observed the sunset together was in 2008 in front of the Sushi restaurant in the Sunset District. Today was another non-event, but this time in North Beach. It was right about dinnertime again this time, too. So as soon as we finished ringing the sun down, we launched ourselves in the other direction going UP the hill in search of something to eat.

Early birds catch the first hole

7:09 AM. Litchfield Park, AZ

In his 21 years on this earth, besides the normal bumps and bruises one collects on the way to adulthood, my asthmatic, accident prone nephew has punctured his liver, broken both of his legs (not at the same time), fractured his arm and suffered a serious concussion. One of his more recent escapades was to attempt a stuntman kind of trick with his younger brother. He directed his brother to drive the car straight at him, thinking he would simply fling himself onto the hood and roll over the top of the car- “just like in the movies”. When it didn’t quite work out the way he had planned, he admitted that it wasn’t one of the brightest things he had ever attempted.

So when he invited me to attend his graduation of his second year in The Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) Certification Program in Arizona, I was thrilled. My sister has been a follower of Donna Eden and practitioner of this form of healing for many years and is a well-respected healer and busy instructor. That my nephew is both interested and committed to learning and practicing something that is positive and beneficial to both his own well being and that of others is a great relief to me. I am also very proud of him. He graduated with 100 other students (mostly women) at the Wigwam Motel, Spa and golf resort. It has never ceased to amaze me that there are over 420 golf courses in the desert of Arizona. No matter that it’s a very dry place, it’s easier to turn it green than to make the sun shine.
