My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

Spontaneity



Spontaneous moments are so fun. Natalie and I did cartwheels on the beach in East Oahu. What's funner than laughing with someone you love? We also spontaneously stopped and took an amazing hike through bamboo in Maui on the Road to Hana. It was raining in the jungle, we weren't sure where we were going but thought from the cars also stopped on this little street the destination must be amazing! It was an incredible waterfall! Sometimes spontaneity can lead to a tradition! On our first visit to Oahu with the kids years ago we found Giovannis - a van with amazing shrimp (I'm told - myself not a big shrimp/fish fan. Its the experience that makes it so fun for me ... and the rice is incredible!)Spontaneity led us to a cave the boys explored while us girls chatted in the middle of a ti-leaf maze!
For life to run smooth w/blindness, many parts of my life are methodically planned out ... how I'm getting where, putting something away in just the right place so I can find it the next time, etc, etc, etc! I love and cherish spontaneous and random moments when they happen.

Couldn't agree more Becky. Blindness can be boring like that and spontaneity is rare but always great fun.
