Well I missed sharing it here, anyway! My host was down. It happens a little bit and I’m not so concerned about it. This is not a life and death blog. I’m not relying on it for my income or status in the world. I moved my hosting to a local student last year. He is one of the original Digital Shed students who has hosting services as a part time enterprise. Sometimes the hosting goes down, but so what. I feel good about sending my dollars to a local, young person rather than a stranger whose money will feed a far off economy rather than my own.
The eclipse was interesting. I am doing a Good Vibe Astrology course at the moment called Astro Biz and I am learning so much. It’s probably the 3rd course I’ve done with them and I love how the information is beginning to stick and I’m able to see patterns and connections in charts. I’ve been practising a lot lately on my friends and family.
The VRI hall is coming along well. Yoga classes have started there and next week we have an information session with Federation Training about our proposed Community Based VCAL we intend to run in 2015. I’m also going to be following up a few people who have expressed interest about using the space. Tomorrow night Rose and I are presenting to Latrobe City Council about our plans and looking to them for some further financial support. I expect it will go well – most have been helpful and interested so far. There are just a few things that need to be sorted out and I believe that it is doable.
Sometimes I feel really impatient about it all but this week I’ve reflected on how much we have achieved. The roof is repaired – it took just over a year from the time we crowd funded. We’ve also painted and repaired the interior. I estimate that over 100 people contributed to it. People from a wide variety of places and walks of life, with an age range of over 50 years. We had financial and resources contributed by around 100 people and businesses and some contributed both money and labour. The reaching of this goal is great but the journey was pretty awesome also. I want to remember to appreciate along the way, because there is still a way to go :-).
