I have been away from my office and the joy of writing this blog for awhile…  My day job and passion in retirement is vice chair of Neighbors for Kids in Depoe Bay, Oregon.  We held our 5th annual charity golf tournament at Chinook Winds Golf Resort in Lincoln City, Oregon, on Saturday, July 19, 2014…The charity event was a fabulous success with over 100 players, including 12 top high school sponsored golfers.  Dan Fouts, NFL Hall of Fame, 1993, San Diego Chargers played in the event again this year and urged safety in sports during an interview  with the Lincoln City NewsGuard…  (click highlighted text for more)

I was very proud and honored to have played in NFK’s 5th Annual Charity Golf event yesterday.  The kids in the photo above in my foursome include, from the left, Logan, (Steve), Janie, and Gray.  Logan is age 12, from Taft, and plays like a future Tiger Woods!  Both Janie and Gray, HS seniors from Newport, are very good on the course.  All three are exemplary kids and young adults…  I was able to redeem myself from time to time with some great shots, especially on the 16th hole pictured above.  It was one of the best times in my life on the golf course…  The experience touched my heart deeply…

This year’s tournament was also a defining moment for Neighbors for Kids.  The photos above make a powerful statement of who we are as we go forward making a huge difference for kids and the community we serve. We are so very grateful for the overwhelming community support for this event!  There is so much to be thankful for as we celebrate and appreciate the heartwarming work we do for children and families in Lincoln County, Oregon.

Friday has become my day to share the music of healing from special selections, including Pablo Arellano…  Music of this soothing variety and extended play is very much part of my own mindful journey of healing.  It is important to take time out and use music to wander to happy places where living in the moment takes a priority, even for a short period of time.  Pablo Arellano’s music takes me to those happy places.  Hope you can take time away from your busy schedule in the privacy of a quiet and comfortable place at home, on the beach, or in the mountains and listen to this uplifting spiritual music.  Mindfulness is the perfect way to practice living in the moment, a most healing experience and relief from stress.
