Windchill’s memory…remembering…

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Hi friends,

This is way late in coming. We just finished a Windchill Legacy board meeting. It’s 7pm on the anniversary of Windchill’s passing. As many of you will recall he passed away on February 29, 2008 – he found a way to make that day his own, just as he took a word that defines cold, wind chill,  and made it a warm place in all of our hearts.  Tonight his quiet resolve, determination, and that playful sometimes mischievous and always loving spirit he had will be remembered by people across this land. I haven’t had the time I would’ve liked to post and remember his memory. I think he’d understand. I’ve been busy working with the publisher of his upcoming book. We had all hoped to have a book cover design ready to show you, unfortunately everything is still being tweaked. The manuscript is in the design and layout stage, the pictures have all been chosen, quotes from reviewers have been selected and the narrative for the front and back cover are finished – lots of moving pieces to this book process! In the end hopefully this book will honor his memory, tell his story, and move people to want to end abuse and neglect in all its forms. One person at a time we can end the cycle and we can all make a difference. I learned that from a little 9 month old colt who touched the world and gave us all a little bit of hope back. Rest in peace little man. And know that we still believe.

How long has it been? I’ve gotten so busy with things like writing Windchill’s book that I’d forgotten to come back here and update you on life in general! I’m so sorry. How are you all doing? Is anybody even visiting? I’m betting I know a couple of people who do regularly…  But for those friendly and nice – tell me what you’ve been up to?

Me? Well…writing the book. Received a couple of awards at work – Top 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare, Top 23 Names in Healthcare… bought a new place. It’s a beautiful log home overlooking rolling hills filled with oak and maple trees and a 48 x 96 foot barn that has room for all my dreams and more! I get plenty of exercise chopping wood for the outdoor wood furnace and the indoor wood stove. Stepping into the place is like walking into a warm hug – it’s wonderful!

That’s all I have time for for now. I’ll try and get some pictures uploaded here soon. Hope all is well friends!
