2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
My daughter and I will be relocating to Ashland this summer. She wants to attend Ashland HS and is also very interested in Southern Oregon University. It is the beautiful land, rich culture in theater and other arts, and the desire to live in a more peaceful atmosphere that has drawn our spirits to this area. We hope to network and discover what Ashland has to offer through this site. Can't wait to be a part of the community!
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
I have a lot of experience and information about hospice and palliative care, since that has been my specialty. I also am well read on many topics of spirituality, and I love working with Angels for healing in my practice. I hope to find a wellness center, or other venue where I could continue my practice or serve as a RN consultant or coordinator for health care.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
I am a holistic RN and a Reiki Master practitioner. Co-founded SpiritmovesmeReiki, Inc with a friend and fellow practitioner this year here in my current city of Philadelphia. I am looking forward to meeting other like minded people who would enjoy discussing or having a Reiki session.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
My daughter is an aspiring actress, so she has exposed me to a lot of theater and movies. She prefers Classic Hollywood, as do I..Bette Davis, Norma Shearer, Cary Grant and Humphrey Bogart. Her all time favorite is Meryl Streep with Susan Sarandon as a close second :-)
As for myself, I love to read...I think I absorb books, I go through them so quickly! I have so many favorite authors, it would take awhile to name them...I do tend to prefer books on spirituality, revisionist history, and "chick lit". Would be great to find a book club, and I'd love to learn about the local bookstores!
~Looks like you are doing good on the networking Heather. As you are starting before even moving here. This site has a great newsletter about all the happenings going on around town. The food coop also has a newletter.
~Aloha Heather, welcome to Ashland's loving healing energy. I have been here a year and love the people and the way they share their light. My daughter is an art major at SOU and loves it also. It is a bit cold here for me (after 21 years in Hawaii), but you will probably call it mild weather. :)

Scientists have created a mutant enzyme that breaks down plastic drinks bottles – by accident. The breakthrough could help solve the global plastic pollution crisis by enabling for the first time the full recycling of bottles. The new research was spurred by the discovery in 2016 of the first bacterium that had naturally evolved to eat plastic, at a waste dump in Japan. Scientists have now revealed the detailed structure of the crucial enzyme produced by the bug.
A chill has hit homesolar According to GTM Research’s latest U.S. Solar Market Insight report, Q3 2017 was the third consecutive quarter that the residential solar market fell by installation volume. It's easy to blame the “big three” for this downturn -- collectively, SolarCity, Vivint Solar and Sunrun (excluding Sunrun's channel business) are down 32 percent in installation volume over the first three quarters of 2016, according to the latest U.S. PV Leaderboard. At the same time, we talk about the rest of the market -- the long tail -- as though it were an aggregate force tempering the downfalls of the behemoth big three.
