She was generous with me and many other family members.
Her friend and advisor, Michael Ladiana died in Ventura county in February of 2oo1 at the age of 53.

Is it a trip? A visit? A move.
It seems to have something to do with a destination.
I've considered Norway, Myanmar, Germany, and Switzerland.
I've also considered Sri Lanka, Poland, Cambodia, and Spain.
My sister has mentioned Ireland. Thailand is great. Turkey, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and even Nicaragua have their points.
In order of preference my top nine are:
There was a time when I did little more than point my toes in a likely direction and take one step after another.
Now I have lots of questions. I question my motives, my sanity, my lack of clear goals and much more.
Questions that occur to me at the moment include:
- Why choose Uruguay?
- Why not stay here?
- Where should I go?
- Why should I go?
- What do I expect to find there?
- What do I expect to do there?
- How long do I intend to stay?
- How does a destination effect my top goals?
- Why do my top goals seem less clear than usual?
- Am I planing to make a new home? Why?
- How shall I go there?
- What if I find I don't like being there?
- Shall I rent out the JT House before I start.
- Should I drive to Miami and sell the Astro there?
- What should I do with my mail?
- What should I do with my utilities?
- Do I have the strength and energy I need?
One thing that I do know that whatever it is I intend to do, now is the time to begin it.

What has this to do with US foreign policy?
"It-Spo-Iotsi" is from the Ajunan-wi language of Pitt River People. It is pretty close to the the English word "truth." It means straight talk. More, it is a spiritual agreement with the self to speak the truth. It is a hallmark of true humanity. It-Spo-Iotsi is truth made visible by living in a good way and cherishing life.
It is good to know that the cleanliness of truth is.
Pitt River People know that the Sacramento Valley was once a great lake 'as long as the land.' They know that an earthquake opened the coastal range, allowing that great water to drain into the pacific. When it did, there was San Francisco Bay and in it Shinning Rock Island, Alcatraz. A truth was there.
When Pitt River People were taken away by force in many directions, some were taken to Alcatraz. Truth will set us free. The Mouse Brothers may have brought a strong consciousness of truth to the Pitt River People from Alcatraz, Shinning Rock Island. Truth must be understood, appreciated, and acknowledged.
~ Do I lack the strength, energy, and alertness necessary for a solo foreign trip?
~ What am I looking for?
~ What is my motivation?
~ I'm pretty sure that part of my motivation is an ancient one of looking for a home. How sane is that?
~ I'm thinking of renting my JT place before I start. Does that make good sense.
~ Should I make a shorter trip to more expensive lands?

If that seems complicated I suggest you try prayer. If prayer seems attractive you might what to remember that persons familiar with the process suggest that to be effective prayer ought to be sincere,m honest, and, probably, realistic. Knowers of prayer have also suggested that the best prayer is for knowledge of God's will. Others suggest that prayer for self knowledge is also worthwhile. It's also fair to prayer that your car fly you and your significant other around the moon.
If that seems complicated .........
For a fairly accessible way to extend your understanding of reality try Wikipedia. Check out:
~ General Semantics; but, remember that the Count is a dead Pole.
~ Philosophy of History; but, remember that history is really big, philosophy too.
After that you might want to check out field theory, philosophy of physics, and a lot of math. Before you do you might first ask yourself, "Whadahyawanaknofer?"
