Did you know that for the last two years I have applied for the prestigious Purpose Prize?
The Purpose Prize, now in its ninth year, is the nation’s pre-eminent large-scale investment in people over 60 who are combining their passion and experience for social good. The Prize awards at least $100,000 annually to individuals creating new ways to solve tough social problems. The 2014 Purpose Prize awarded $300,000 to six individuals.
In the first year, I simply received a polite response of, "No. Sorry. You didn't make it."
In the second year, I was invited to add my story to the many people out there who are working diligently and with passion towards bringing about change in the world. I was so honored!
I will apply again every year until I am awarded this incredible prize.

Thanks so much for your honoring me with your readership of this new blog!
As I write, I discover more and more who I am, and, as I do so, I share with you, in case anything I write may resonate with, help, or guide you.
