Whirlwind 2 weeks in Toronto!

Once I arrived in Toronto from New York (after the excellent trip on the freighter ship)

I visited with kids and grandkids. I arrived in time for a visit with granddaughter Spencer, who was home from University. I also had a visit with Megan, a very articulate young woman, and was able to attend a few hockey games of Ben and Dawson. It is a privilege to see these kids grow up and thrive.

I spent most of my time driving back and forth to downtown Toronto for appointments and getting ready for my India trip and next stop Athens. I didn’t even have a lot of time for movies, but did go to see Bat out of Hell, a theatre production written with the music of the old rock and roller Meatloaf. It was amazing! I caught up with the Bk and my adopted family, plus many friends.

All fun and felt good.

Next year is decision time for me.

My sabbatical with the Canadian health insurance is up in September 2018 which means I have to spend a number of months in Canada or do I want to spend most of my time in the UK? (at this point l have no idea)

I am writing this after just arriving in India. The sun is shining and it is warm. October has perfect weather.

PS I also attended 3 Diwali celebrations (which I call Indian Christmas)

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.
