Wow, this has been a big month for me!
Ok, the first thing I want to write about is my electricity bill. I got my first electricity bill for the studio apartment I live in. For electricity for the past couple months, the bill was only $35! An advertisement comes with the bill saying that Seattle City Light will give you a free LED light bulb. The advertisement literally says “Step 1: Install. Step 2: Wait 20 Years. Step 3: Replace.” Whoa! That’s some new world kind of advertising right here. That’s not really why I’ve had such a big month though.
I’ve published a book! I had been writing it since last year but was inspired to finish and publish it. It is about an imaginary planet I had inside my head starting from the time I was 9 years old. I share this vision of this planet in hopes that it will inspire others to create a better life on our planet. Oh yes, and I do mention Dancing Rabbit in the book. Either by clicking on the image or going to www.newparadigmplanet.com, you too can have a copy of this lovely piece of my essence. If you read the book and provide feedback by May 1, 2015, I’ll send you another copy of the public release edition. If this has peaked your interest, you can find more info on the website.
I have also made a decision to release my membership at Dancing Rabbit in June. Part of my heart wants to cry, and there are oh so many complex reasons pulling me towards either direction, but I think the river of my life is flowing in Seattle, at least for now. I do plan to come back to visit, at least once per year, and I’ll be back in June for a week to collect my things. Some of the reasons are the eco consciousness of the mainstream and the lightening speed at which it is growing into greater ecological awareness in this city. I think the main reason though that tipped my decision to stay in Seattle is that I would like to get my book into major bookstores here and give workshops or go to events that can promote me as an author and life improvement coach. This may be easier to do in a city than in Missouri over the internet and phone. I’ve found that in person connection face to face with many people is very effective, and I can do this in Seattle with hundreds of people without having to go on some kind of tour. For now, I am open to the adventure of life that I’m having in Seattle, and I have so much love for all the people of DR and the wonderful, life enriching time I’ve spent there.
