This newsletter comes from northern Indiana just south of Lake Michigan.
Where have I been since the last newsletter? Mostly in Indiana and Kentucky.
A number of welcoming acupuncturists shared with me what they are doing and how they love where they live and work. I spent time with licensed acupuncturists who are finding ways to serve the underserved, those who do group treatments, and those who are of service through publication. Some work with doctors and some work with assistants, and some work with their families. Most everyone does more than one of these things.
In terms of being a tourist, things are a little less quiet east of the Mississippi. When I wanted to go to a national park during the government shutdown, there was often a state park next door to show the same landscape such as effigy mounds in Iowa. This segment of the trip has included visits to a number of churches and multiple monasteries, not all of them Christian. If you're curious to see where I've been, there is a slideshow below.
If you are still asking where I'm going to live in a few months or a year, know that this is an evolution. I’m here to feel it all out, ask for guidance, and be outdoors, even camping, as much as possible. I don’t expect clarity for some time yet.
You can be pretty sure my next newsletter will be from further south, in a warmer place. I hope you're finding some warm places also this fall.
I'm a Licensed Acupuncturist who loves to cook and share tips on Chinese medicine. Lately I've been on a road trip. Please subscribe to my newsletter for news on feeling your best!
