I am no longer doing administrative work at Camp Second Chance. Things are stable there; the situation is no longer in danger of collapsing into chaos, as it was when I started four months ago. I’m still close to the camp, and to LIHI, but I’m not putting in near-full-time hours.
Instead, I’m seeking my roots, going back to doing the things that brought me joy when I began this journey 18 months ago. Specifically, I’m delivering concrete benefits to real people that make a difference RIGHT NOW, starting with food. I serve oatmeal breakfast for Licton Springs Village on Saturday morning. I cook a casserole for the Rainier Popup Kitchen on Sunday afternoon. I made chili for Camp Second Chance last week, and I want that to become a regular thing again, like it used to be.
And there are new things, too!
