My Way and Fishing

I was taken out Cod fishing last weekend in Harbour Grace; the weather was just perfect, warm, and the ocean was calm like glass.

Our Captain was Bruce, his daughter Shannon had invited me, and Bruce’s lovely wife  Jenny came along. Bruce is a very successful fisherman and business man on the island, he was very patient with me being the novice one in the boat. 

There are quotas in Newfoundland for every species. Everyone is allowed to recreational fish for Cod on the weekends in the summer but you are only allowed to catch 5 fish per person or 15 per boat, and fish police check you out, they even monitor the boats via airplane – they flew over us when we were out. In one hour we had our 15 Cod and I think I caught 2 of the largest, what fun!!

See the pictures below

My First Fish! And it’s so big!

My Way

My Way, the story of my life, was published in India 6 years ago and is still selling on Amazon. After my book was published, the Publisher went out of business, so I have never seen a penny from the sale of the book, it is going somewhere, I just don’t know where.

At one point I sent an email to Jeff Bezos CEO of Amazon,  his reply was he couldn’t reveal where the money was going, but I should hire a lawyer. My reply –  if it was selling like Eat, Pray, Love, I would do that, but until then, no lawyers.

I have met a young woman here who is a computer whiz by the name of Shannon. I do now have the rights to the book, so we will start to sell digital downloads from my Blog, I was a little uncomfortable  with this decision, but everyone who reads it says it is a very honest book , a quick read, like having a conversation with me, and as you know I have had quite the life.

Please read some of the book endorsements and comments below.

“This book is about overcoming adversity and finding the silver lining in every cloud that comes along to steal the light. My dear friend Betty Steinhauer lost her father while still very young and had to fend for herself and her mentally ill mother from a very young age. She persevered and found herself a wife and mother in the suburbs of Toronto, but a voice inside her was calling on her to do far more with her life. From housewife to community activist, she was soon running an international foundation and subsidizing projects in some of the poorest countries in the world. From there, she went on to meet world and spiritual leaders, often a guest at international meetings and conferences on community building. Through it all, she continued to pursue her deep and abiding love for India and engage in some very tender and romantic love affairs. Today, in her mid 70s, she continues to travel the world as what she refers to as a “nomadic intern”, still as much a student of life as when she was a small girl.

This is a deeply moving story of what I have come to realize is a remarkable woman who sees humanity as one family, sharing far more commonality than differences. The way she is able to reach out and help people all over the globe is nothing short of inspirational and shows what we can accomplish if we focus on the positive, the light and never stop loving each other especially at our most vulnerable moments. A delightful and purely inspirational read that may well change how you look at your own life.” – Gordon Mcivor.

“A candid story of resilience amidst life’s extreme adversities.”–Brahma Kumari Shivani, Spiritual Counsellor, India
