It is zero degrees outside as I write this and I am so grateful for my warm home.
I'm sure you are too. Old man winter produced some really weird phenomena in my yard
recently-- about 125 snow bales, one foot or so in diameter, made by the swirling
winds and gravity. I took pictures of them but don't know if they are sharp enough
to print and send.
Since the weather encourages us to stay inside, this is a good time to learn to get
in touch with the silence within ourselves and remember that every-thing in this
life has a purpose. The silver lining of this cold weather will be a decrease in
destructive and disease-causing insects, and our health will benefit from being forced
to slow down.
' This is also a good time to acknowledge, recognize and reorder meaningful priorities
so they give purpose to our days. Since this is a deeply personal task, it takes
peace of mind and clarity to accomplish. The cold and darkness of winter is a perfect
time for this if you nix TV for music that you love. Just remember that priorities
need not be written in stone. They need to be flexible so they can change as we do
like a thin wooden frame upon which we can stretch the canvas of our days. To some
degree, we create ourselves anew by the choices that we make each day, and our own
special imprint on life is in the details that we have chosen along the way. ' Think
deeply, choose carefully.
The same is true for our club. Some Lions priorities will probably never change however,
but the way they play out varies over time and space. February would have been the
perfect time to start the Process for Excellence experience if we didn't have our
90th Anniversary to plan. PDG Hollern is a consultant with this important task and
it will get done, if not while I am president, then later. Your opinion and ideas
count if we are to continue to thrive. It is a priority in my mind.
I hope we can do something special on Valentine's weekend, but need to obtain more
information about a few possibilities before I suggest anything. I apologize for
Please don't forget to mark your calendar with that special 90th anniversary date,
March 22, and if you have any good ideas to help make it special, please speak up.
Keep warm my friends,
King Lion Judy
