However, you likely do not yet know the answer because we don't quite know how to tell it, even to ourselves.
We still have a long way to go to help you know what we are up to and, hopefully, inspire YOU to join us for the adventure ahead.
Here’s how our first public step on the road went...
Anastasia, Sue and Terry agreed we would get together and do an online radio show, on the Sunday, just passed, after Thanksgiving, amid myriad personal crises and up against the backdrop of covid-19.
|Answer, Short Form: |
With a lot of help from my friends.
It seemed simple enough when I offered them my draft radio show outline. Everyone got on board immediately, the three of us agreeing we were pleased with the plan, starting off approximately like this .. .
Good morning listeners –
This is Anastasia Rosen-Jones on Anastasia The Storyteller on Blog Talk Radio, today with two of my esteemed board members, Sue deVeer and Terry.
We are thankful to be here, healthy and relatively stable and very grateful for what we, as a board, have managed to create in the form of a kind of lemonade made out of the lemons of the past months, since mid-March when quarantining became the rule of the land.
Since that time, we have –
Organized a Nationwide Pandemic Survivors Support Group that Sue now leads, regularly on Mondays and Wednesdays;
Established a regular, ongoing manuscript study group, meeting on Friday mornings, led by me, as after all, they are my manuscripts;
Also under my guidance, a new version of this “elite” class, originally designed especially for my NH/ZOP Board Members, that has become a true source of clarity, strength and hope for each one of us, teacher and student. is now being readied to soon be available for the general, qualified public;
Created a Forest Bathing Sanctuary to share the wide-open safe spaces we have at our Harpers Ferry Retreat Center;
Expanded the format and scheduling plan for my Anastasia The Storyteller Radio Show to become a part of another recent new program addition, just beginning, Storytelling and Conversation with Anastasia and Friends, already in motion;
And, of course –
The adventure of my having a brand-new book in progress, intended to be only the first in a series of four parts, the collection to be titled Lost Hope Regained, book 1, not yet titled.
The spotlight was to be on the latter, the book publishing contract and all it entails, the exciting donation pledge we received last month that gave this project the boost it needed and now the book publishing adventure itself that is developing out of it.
We were not, however, able to take that last one up, as planned for the show!
Instead, just as I completed reading our list of pridefully celebrated organizational accomplishments, achieved during the course of the pandemic thus far, challenged though each of us has been, like everyone else - Sue offered..
“How did we get here?” she reflected, standing back a moment to gather into her mind what seems, day-by-day, more and more remarkable to us.
Well we all certainly are amazed at this list of efforts, tailor-designed for the crises we are now enduring!
Q: But how DID we DO it? And In the midst of the pandemic?
- With a lot of help from one another, as board members who have grown, even with some touchy moments, and deepened our friendship through this time of distress.
- We are walking a long road but not alone.
- Sometimes it seems we are helping one another to be living almost a miracle of transformation through crisis.
