This is to everybody that got my earlier email, both of the last two days. I built up the list of addresses to send out information about the awareness walk, not the contest. I’m sorry for what I did, I crossed the purposes, and it won’t happen again. To everybody that withdrew from the list, please consider registering your address again, and I promise to not use that information for any other purpose than what it was designed to be used for. http://eepurl.com/DP0un
I’ve a new blog, that’s generic for the walk. It’s Conquer Acquired Brain Injury. Please go, and follow it.
The Running Room has recognized CABI as an event, and has made online registration possible through there! If you would like to participate, but do not live in Ottawa, please register, and send me a note about it. I’ll go through the list, and your name will probably pop out at me, but it’s better to be safe.

I have made some decisions, based on my situation, that will affect how I live, and what I do. I was given a present by a friend, that was a package offered by a company to help me re-design my online persona, and to update all of my social media images.
I had an appointment with a professional photographer, and my pictures were taken. My online-image was updated.
I have updated all of my IDs accordingly, and applied for others, to augment my new “identity”.

All of the information is:
The walk/run was done, everywhere, but I was a part of the Ottawa walk. There were over 20 people, including 3 fellow-brain-injured people! We walked for 2 kilometers, followed by an absolutely phenomenal lunch. There were many pictures taken of the event, and everybody looked like they had a good time.
Thanks to the donation of time, the design for the shirts was done by a friend.
This is the shirt:
I’m looking outside, and the fact that it’s raining is telling me that I don’t have any idea what the weather will be on “walk day”, anywhere in the world. Since the weather is pretty important, I’ll keep checking it for Ottawa, and I’ll try to make a posting about the viability of the walk, and if it’s going to happen. I hope it does, but I don’t know. For everyone around the world, please do the walk in good weather. I hope that it agrees, but there will be rain somewhere in the world on that day.
When talking with Cathy about the walk, she had a lot of awesome ideas. I’ll talk to the location that I think that I’ve decided upon for the walk, but she made a comment about pictures. I thought that that’s a totally awesome idea. So this is to everyone that will do the walk: I would like a picture of you, and whoever you’re with! I’m going to create a memory-board for the walk, so please send to me a picture of you at the end, that “tells” where you are, something interesting about where you are, and maybe what you have done if you’ve done something besides a regular walk.
