I’m finally getting really settled here in Chapel Hill. This past weekend I had a wonderful experience when I went to the Farmer’s Market in Saxapahaw (just outside of Chapel Hill) to do some chair massage to benefit their Community Chest fund so they can build a park near the river.
It was like being in the play “Oklahoma” or in a Norman Rockwell painting — children were running around barefoot and climbing on huge rolls of hay; vendors were selling fresh vegetables they grow on their local farms, and honey that comes from their beehives; there was homemade ice cream; music from a bluegrass group, with plenty of patriotic songs to celebrate the 4th of July. There were times when I just looked out and couldn’t believe that this was all real and not just some scene from a movie. I loved it!
I’ve opened up my website to introduce myself to people here in Chapel Hill, and that made me know that I’m ready to get established. I’ll really feel like I’m a part of the neighborhood when I start to work with the many athletes that live in this area, and also with non-athletes who are suffering from chronic pain. That will come soon I’m sure, but since my work is so different from massage, it’s going to take my doing some free demonstrations and talks, and that’s fine because it’s also a way for me to make new friends.
If you are in the area, or if you know any people who live near Chapel Hill, I hope to meet you. Please let me know you read my blog
Have a great day,
