If there’s anyone you still need to reach out to, or if you’re looking for something fun to get a New Year resolution for healthy living off to a great start, Lisa Kimsey of Smarty Dance Hawaii, and Laura Margulies, creator of Leimation ecards and evites have answers.   Both Lisa Kimsey and Laura Margulies have become arts entrepreneurs, that’s a good trick in Hawaii.  These women are admirable and encouraging examples of pursuing their passions, doing meaningful work, and contributing positively to the community.

Living in the same neighborhood for a long time provides a richness of shared experiences from another perspective.  We three, having grown up in, and returned to, the same neighborhood, had a great time chatting about things we did and did not remember.  That’s another gift of  year end holidays.  Reconnecting and celebrating in real time, savoring a pause in timeline updates to notice, without notification.

PS At the time we taped the show, Leimation were somewhat limited for social media.  That bug has since been squashed, they are now sharable anywhere via URL.

Every once and awhile someone actually FOLLOWS the good advice of their chosen healers. Julie Rooney RN took the plunge to heal a lethal mélange of serious diseases: diabetes, metastatic Crohn’s, hypothyroidism, and Addison’s, holistically.  She shows what it looks like to actually make that leap of faith, to take responsibility for her life and healing, and to face and embrace the changes.

Because when you’ve tried everything Stanford Medical Center and Mayo Clinic have to offer, and it doesn’t work, choosing life means blazing your own ke ala ola, path of life.

p.s. Yes, I’m way behind on this written blog for a number of reasons, including a stolen laptop, but I’ll get to them
