It was a great honor, and a good beginning to getting my message out there. The host of "Amazing Women of the Suncoast," Linda Carson and her camera man were great fun and gave me full expression. It's too bad that so much had to be edited out, and that so much limited footage was taken up with my standing still, and awkwardly, waiting the signal to open the curtain to my closet, when there were so many compelling shots. One of my favorites was when the camera man climbed the ladder to my bed loft, while Linda got a shot of my handing him, his camera. She was joking about titling it "to what heights for a picture ?" And the shot was looking down on the "great room" from above and panning forward to take in the full length of the "water room" where all kitchen, bathroom and laundry components were built, ending with an inside shot of the 8' stained glass door, at the top of which hung a colorful array of scarves and hats.
Their enthusiasm for my "attitude" and "flexibility" were inspiring to me, also. They liked my philosophy that every time a chapter of your life is ended in loss, it's time to start writing the next chapter, even BETTER, with more blessings coming from your loss. And, if you can keep your eye on your dream and and not get diverted by those who try to discourage you, or challenges that come to test your resolve, you will certainly realize you Dream. Already, new Baha'i Inspired facets of the Diamond of Service have been added to my original vision, of my "Gypsy" life. Many opportunities have been presented and are in process of becoming.

When the economy crashed and Jaclyn was being forced from her home due to foreclosure, she knew she wanted more than just a roof over her head. She wanted to travel, and have adventures, but didn't want to live in an RV. She wanted her home to be soul inspiring and nurturing, but needed to create it on a shoe-string budget. So, with minimal funds and a little help from her friends, she built her tiny traveling sanctuary.
In this blog, you'll find the story of Jaclyn's journey from foreclosure to Living Large, Tiny in her Gypsy Island Sanctuary.
Go here for her story.
