8.11.11 Touching Base two months on from arriving home…

Every day is a blessing to me. The privilege of work, friends, home, a wonderful community to live in and raise my family a place like the Macleay Valley to simply Be.   Everything is amplified for me as always looming in the backdrop is how quickly life can change and  since losing Hannah I take nothing for granted.  Every thing is a blessing and I am grateful.

I’m working at both TAFE in Macksville in a coordinating role and also at the Macleay Vocational College as a workplacement coordinator 4.5 days per week between both organisations. This is keeping me pretty busy in conjunction with ongoing ride4acure tasks and future planning (I’m always planning!)

I recently was able to contribute to Life Matters on ABC Radio National’s Life Matters regarding charity choices. From this radio interview I’ve been presented with the opportunity to meet up with Professor Rick Kefford who is a leading Melanoma Researcher focusing on the role genetics have. I’m hoping to get to Sydney by the end of November and possibly line up with a visit to the gallery of NSW Parliament to be in the gallery when a community petition is tabled by the NSW Cancer Council to extend smoking bans in outdoor areas.

There’s also a feature article in the latest Horse Downunder magazine for the Coast2Coast Horse Trek – has a great picture of Esther, the three horses and her dog Bobby on the front cover.Esther and ride4acure horses 'Meg', Titan' and Surprise with Bobby.
