the new do

Busy afternoon as I drove quickly from Cut Loose Salon (where Diane did her magic) to physical therapy. The haircut looks like me several years ago. Maybe it can be my ticket to time travel! And tonight I walked out of the physical therapy office and stopped in my tracks. The pain was gone! Michael Fahning always says “I am a lucky man”. Well Michael, “I am one lucky woman”. So many of us travel to other towns for those visits with the allied health professions. I have a great team right here in Hermiston. Consider this a Shout Out to Kimber and Rick at Good Shepherd physical therapy, Cindee Henderson of Higher Power Fitness, Mary Mary Hansz Lunsford Massage Therapist and of course Diane Cherry who created my DBS surgery haircut.

I am a middle aged woman with Parkinson's Disease. When I was first diagnosed I spent a lot of time researching the disease. Seeing a video of a man in the advanced stages of the disease attempting to get out of his chair and then "freezing" as he tried to walk across the room got me off my butt and moving. Great adventures on the Camino de Santiago and with TEAM Pedaling for Parkinson's across IOWA, as well as the day to day adventures of life have lead me to writing. My first novel, a memoir, will be published early 2019. It is called, you got it THE RIBBON OF ROAD AHEAD. Living with the degenerative neurological disease Parkinson's, ULTREIA is a word that guides me. I have chosen it as the name of my business ULTREIA BOOKS. It comes from Latin and old French and means "unfailing courage". In the old days, pilgrims would call "Ultreïa" to each other as encouragement "Go up, go further!" Nowadays we would say "You can do this thing". It takes courage to live with Parkinson's. May I face each day with unfailing courage.
