I am attending a class at the Chabad here in Venice and I am meeting such interesting people. Tonight ,I played Jewish geography with a woman and found a link to New Orleans. I heard her story about Katrina and I told her the sad happening to my family. Then,and this is corny sounding, but I was in this class for a reason. You know how there are no coincidences.. this woman said that she wouldn’t be able to continue in the class because just this evening, she realized that she was having a problem seeing at night and felt confused driving in the dark.It turns out that she doesn’t live far from me and I made arrangements to pick her up for the rest of the class.  That made me feel good that I could help her. Then  I met a woman who is my FaceBook friend and I didn’t even know it. We have a mutual friend who belongs to the JCV. She lives in my development. what a small world.Then , for icing on the evening, a guy sitting a seat away from me introduced himself and I found out that he worked in the embassy in Vienna. How cool is that. And yes, the class was good.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

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?
