Is anyone out there wondering why I still think of this as a plant blog? I swear, I’m getting closer to both telling my story, Dottie’s story, and getting back to posts about plants.
My biggest obstacle has been that in order to write, I need a clear mind and clear space. And since I’ve been surrounded by boxes for the last few weeks, you can imagine that equals chaos in my creative mind. The good news is, I’m down to only one box left!!!!! Which means there’s only a handful of possessions that have not found a new permanent home. Which means, I’m almost settled in. So that’s quite the relief. Bit by bit, I’m getting closer.
Still, I sometimes find myself wishing for a fast-forward button, so I can get this new life started a little quicker.
But then I notice that someone took the (slow) time to paint something like the above mural, and I’m reminded not to be in too much of a hurry.
I was trying to see if I could spin this story somehow so that I could take credit for it. I moved to Arizona a month ago, and suddenly Arizona is the first ever team in the NFL to hire a female assistant coach – how could that NOT be somehow due to me? Haha, juuuuust kidding.
Seriously though, good for her! She sounds like a total badass. Check out the local news coverage of the announcement by clicking here. (I was hoping they would provide the clip from the evening news – it was very moving. If they post it later, I’ll update my page)
* The national news has been reporting that the Arizona Cardinals play in Phoenix. They actually play in Glendale, which is part of the greater Phoenix metropolitan area, but still its own city. Anyway, I was in Glendale this morning, and having heard the announcement last night, brought my camera along.
