Feeling strong. Lots of precious positive moments. Today, for example, a wonderful intimate chat with my lovely hairdresser about helping people, who to help and who to let go. As another example, my present house custodian expressed disappointment when I gave my notice at the start of June, but he has found a decent guy to take my place, while I have a few hot leads on good suites in great locations. Further to those example, I am enjoying a car-share service at a very affordable rate and have taken care of errands and gone on an outing with relatives in need already. On that drive, we marveled at the spectacular panoramic view of Fraser River, the city and the mountains while crossing a magnificent bridge. As well, I have me third interview for another tutoring job coming up this week, which will be a teaching demo. Having fun teaching the younger children. Been to a powerful action in defense of Palestine independence with long-time comrades.
I am excited about finally moving into my own place. I feel close to pinning down a new home, and am looking forward to setting up a household, even though it will be kind of small. Today I was looking at folding Thai "futons", which are very practical and covered in attractively designed cloth. I want to bring out some art and keepsakes. I hope to have a good space with proper light for writing and perhaps sketching and painting.
I am also looking forward to new work prospects, despite the fact that there has been almost no response to the promotion of my business. I do have some contract work and the new teaching prospect would be contract work, which fits into the domain of my self-employment in the name of Edwise. What's more, a friend wants to talk to me about some sort of scheme related to English teaching. Excited and dreaming about what that might be.
Having access to cars again has opened up my life, too. It is wonderful to be able to obtain the use of good cars easily and very affordably to get errands done or just get a change of scenery. The service I'm using is the oldest such service in Vancouver and is a cooperative. The cars are left on streets and are exempt city street parking restrictions. I am an owner-sharer, having made a substantial deposit. I don't have monthly payments; I just pay as I use per hour. I used a car with a key-less ignition yesterday. Marvelous! Cars are getting less mechanical and I feel for that reason and for sharing, it is more responsible use of fossil fuel-burning vehicles in a time when humans must make big changes for the environment.
