The Alzheimer's chapter of my life is now closing and I am looking forward to refocusing my energies.
Working two full-time jobs was just a little bit nuts. In 2013, for example, the AAQI reached it's million dollar goal and I taught for 24 different guilds and invented two quilting tools! That's a lot of good stuff packed into just one year!
I remember when I got my bifocals, the optometrist suggested the "no line" version, called transition lenses. Sounded good. I put them on for the first time and almost lost my lunch. Couldn't see a thing, plus they made me dizzy. The optician said, "Point your nose at what you want to see." That made all the difference in the world. With that advice I got used to my new glasses in about 6 minutes.
For some time now, my nose has been pointing in two different, and often competing, directions. As 2014 begins I am looking forward to pointing my nose at just one thing: making quilts and sharing what I've learned with you. OK, technically that's TWO things, but you get the idea.
