Letting People Know

Follow-up is so important for establishing and keeping relationships.  When I met Stephen the other day in Vernal, I felt it was the right thing to do to call him once I arrived back in town.  His lifestyle sounds good.  He’s a reader.  He has no computer and for communication he has a landline telephone.

We agreed to meet at the Pizza Hut, with the boys and I going for a salad.  Steve, 75, brought his friend, Rod, with him, an accountant, and a special book he ordered, “The Nature of Devotion,” by author Srila Prabhupada, our guru.

Our conversation was light but encouraging.  At mealtime, one should never bring up topics that are too disturbing or too deep.  After our conversation, Steve mentioned he wanted to keep in touch.  He will do that by way of letter, through the mail (snail mail).

In Roosevelt, Utah, I met Brenda Fisher of  the Uintah Basin Standard, for an interview.  I mentioned to her how valuable reporting is to those of the public who have come to appreciate a broader world than their own. http://www.ubmedia.biz/community/article_9b5ad91c-578d-11e7-b737-b35374b14015.html

“Letting people know about our walk is sending a message about physical and spiritual wellness,” I said to Brenda.

Lisa invited us to her mountain home.  Rock formations in Utah are stunning and her house is in the midst of those vistas.  She cooked up a stir fry along with quinoa.  Thereafter, a talk and kirtan in Ashley Valley Park drew the new age community.  It was really sweet.

Jackie Gleason used to say, “How sweet it is!”

May the source be with you!
