December 10

It's Shabbat again. The street is mostly empty. Last night at Shabbat dinner, I met , for the second time, a woman from Texas , who lives here and has a passion for horse back riding. She does it in Jerusalem. Who knew.She has cowboy boots. With spurs,yet. I've always wanted cowboy boots. I'm not particularly fond of horses, but I still want the boots. Besides riding,having grown up with horses in Texas, she volunteers with people who use horse back riding as therapy. There is a reason for everything we do. You like to cook? Volunteer to work at a food kitchen. You like horses.? Volunteer to work with a therapy program. You like to read ? Volunteer to read to the kids. It's such a gift to be in a position to be able to give back your passion. And all I started out wanting is a pair of cowboy boots.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
