Santa Fe, New Mexico - I traveled here a couple of days ago with my friend Jeanne Adams. Jeanne just finished curating and hanging an exhibit entitled Fragile Waters which will open at the San Diego Maritime Museum the first of March. She had a few days free before the opening of the exhibit so we have come to stay with dear friend Janie Davis. I love Santa Fe and take advantage of every opportunity to spend time here.
La Jolla, CA - I went to my Rotary Club meeting this morning in celebration of 30 years since its founding. Founding president George Dewhurst came from Oregon where he now lives to share the club’s history with all of us. I have been a member of La Jolla Sunrise Rotary for more than 20 years now. How did that happen?
As I make plans to return to Liberia for the first time after six months away, the longest time I have been away from this my beloved country since 2006. Please see this recent TED talk about ebola – we all must help to finish it – please no complacency and fatigue until it is eradicated and our human family stops suffering from this deadly virus. Please.
With love and gratitude ~ Deborah
