Saddest Moments for me in 2007:
Losing neighbor Bob Fritsch, February 14th, 2007 to pancreatic cancer.
Losing Halmeoni(Korean for Grandma)-- Up-Young Tae-- to Alzheimer's illness, and old age, June 14th, 2007.
Losing my deeply beloved Theya(Greek for Aunt--she was my Grand Aunt) Helen Hartley, August 14th, 2007, to congestive heart failure.
My Personal, Peace-Filled, Peaceful Moments of 2007:
*The LGBTQ Reading, "My Body Is A Candle Lit By Fire" at Actors' Express where we raised awareness of the plight of gays in Iraq and Iran.Cleo Creech and others read from our "Outside The Green Zone" chapbook.
*Lighting candles at both St. Jude The Apostle, and St. Brigid's Roman Catholic Churches. Candles lit for Peace, for Healing.
*Meditating daily for Peace for my family, for my Hansoo, for my friends, for my community, for the world.
*Romping with my furry babies, "Frisco" and "Louie".They remind me to live "in the moment."
*Beginning a program of doing a walk/run, every day.(After a break to recover from vertigo, I'm back "on track"!)
*Being present at the "Voices Carry " event at The Composition Gallery in September of this year. A wonderful tribute to the late, great Chante' Whitley-Head, by some of the best poets in the po-biz!
*Visiting with my family--all of-- my family-of-origin, in May, at niece Breaz's graduation!
*Beth Gylys' Book Release--I got to play "Bad Girl"!!
* The First Annual Atlanta LGBTQ Literary Festival, October.
