Weddings, movies, and lots of rain. Glasgow and Loch Lomond.

Argyll and Bute-20131130-00249I left Palma to visit my friend, Rev Georgia Baxendale in Motherwell (Scotland), just outside of Glasgow.

Georgia is a very special lady that I met at Windsor Castle last summer. Georgie girl , as I call  her is one of the great ones! She has been sick for the last 30 years and has only 43 percent of her lung capacity left,  plus she has had (and has) a whole bunch of other medical issues (by the way, I have her permission to tell you all of this!). As many of you know animals are little bit scary to me. Well Georgia has a Great Dane puppy plus three cats: it was a test for me and I’m not sure I passed.

Georgia has the greatest spirit of anyone I have ever met. I had the honour of attending a wedding she performed and it was the most beautiful and personal service I have ever heard. She is very good at what she does.

I took the train to Glasgow 3 times to go to the movies. I saw Gravity, Blue something with blue in title (won all the awards at Cannes) very sexual, but beautifully done and a movie with Judy Dench, so I have caught up!!!

I had some trouble sometimes understanding the Scotch English. There was lots of good shopping, but very expensive. I went to lunch at the BK Centre in Glasgow: they are doing very good work with the poor and Inter Faith communities there.

The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lohmond

We also paid a visit to the bonnie banks of  Loch Lohmond which is very beautiful and very wet. We had drinks and dinner at an institution called Rogamos which is the place to be seen and hasn’t changed in forever: it doesn’t have to update it was just packed with people!

I am sure many of you have heard about the helicopter accident that hit the pub in Glasgow. They think that more bodies will be found. Very sad for everyone.

Next stop Barcelona for 3 days and then back to Palma to work on the flat, if it happens great, and if not where will the Nomad go next ….?

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.
