today was a good day

I attended both classes in the Higher Balance classes. All of a sudden, I remembered some successes I had had. They just gushed out as if a waterfall was being tapped. I thought of being the first blind intern and professional in the Legislature in 2009. I thought about the Progress Award I received after my first or second year on the violin, or was it for piano? I had made more progress than any other or than I had made before. I was about 10 or something like that. I remembered going to Social Work school in Industrial Social Work as a single mother and my third year was full-time as I also planned for my son's 16th birthday and his great bar mitzvah. I was told that I should take four years to finish Social Work school, and not three because I could not handle going full-time. I had taken the first two years part-time. I came to Alaska in 1991 over everyone's protestations. There are items I remembered for the book and for this blog about my life, such as tandem biking when I was about thirteen. People would say: "A two-people bicycle." We would go to Grandpa's house, or to Aunt Sylvia's house, I think. Our family was more close-knit back then with people living closer to their relatives. Mobility has really changed all that. Yesterday, I had trouble with e-mail. I am seriously thinking of changing the Internet Service Provider. I don't know how I would do that, with so many people using this account. But, it is possible. I don't think the people at GCI know very much. I was grateful to Steve for giving me a number of a woman who was very helpful. I was told to click on "system restore" and also on AVG free download. It was the AVG download that did the trick. I was not getting e-mail from about 1:20 or so until after about 7:00 or so. I thanked Steve, and let Linda know that her fix had worked. She does not like Microsoft Outlook. Well, it's time to go to bed. Yesterday, I was selected to be a beta tester for google music, so I have to get back to that, and look at a website that Mike G. sent for a technique we use in Higher Balance. Koraling Lynne
