Podcast Recap

From Tacoma, WA, I record a special letting go of my past identity across from my old home on Puget Sound. Comments about Day 141 from BCs Josephine, Petra and Dawny. More ponderings along the waterfront as I process how it felt saying a final good-bye to Mom and how BC Dave gave me comfort in an unexpected way. We celebrate a huge milestone with BC Jo from the UK and hear some samples of her many comments. Stéfanie from Quebec returns with a brand new Secret Topic of the Day.

Rows of headstones with the grave digging backhoe behind

Emotional. We watch the gravediggers open my Dad’s grave in the veteran’s cemetery, so they can place my mom’s ashes in with him.


Flowers on the grave for Mom along with a small American flag to honor my dad's military service

After my parent’s grave a recovered with sod, a temporary marker was placed.

Light in the Dark

Well the time has come
I must move on
We have come to journey’s end
So I’ll say “goodbye” and I’ll be on my way
I will carry memories with me
And I’ll always call you “friend”
I’ve a feeling we will meet again one day

Chorus:
Thank you for loving me selflessly
You gave me strength to find what I need
We’ll be apart, but you’re always in my heart
I hope you know
You were my light in the dark

What will I do in my new life?
Gonna travel ’round the world
I’ll be anywhere I want to be
The best part is I’m livin’
And I’m brave and feeling free
And I’ll proudly say “I’m happy to be me!”

(Chorus)

Bridge:
At last I’m not scared of my tears
I let them fall
Free as the wind
Your words helped me conquer my fears
And I love you all
I love you all

(Chorus)
(Repeat chorus

I feel surprisingly cheerful hiking in my rainbow jacket in the windy weather.

Podcast Recap

Frustration is my target today. It’s windy, it’s crowded, and I have to park my good car in the rugged mountain hiking lot! Thank you to BC Dave for his 5-star review on USA iTunes and to tech guy Mikey, from Jetpack, who helped me solve the technical snafus I shared last time. We celebrate the Bravery of new BC, Shannon, who posts her story and asks for our thoughts on the ‘Want Advice?’ page. Dawny steps in to welcome Shannon as well as to give us a funny joke for Foolish Fun. We hear what’s up with Amy from WI, Sue from the UK, Jill from the UK and Stéfanie from Quebec. BC Dave sends his list for things he does that add value to his life and his request for your list. Stéfanie sends her latest Secret Topic of the Day. Why do we do things we know aren’t in our best interests? I sneak in some singing bravery of my own.

Here’s the view from my convertible, Red Baby, in the crowded hiking area car park.

Home made sound booth solution with blankets and foam draped everywhere!

Here’s why my list of items to work on to make my life better includes researching a more permanent home sound booth setup. My current procedure of dragging out quilts and foam rubber and draping them over laundry racks every time I need to record inside is getting a bit old.

Podcast Recap

It’s time for the Brave Companions to Partay! We celebrate Compulsive Overeating Diary’s one year anniversary and its 100th episode with music, good wishes, interviews and the debut of The Brave Companions’ Song featuring BCs from around the world written and sung by our own BC and talented song writer, Fionna Lane. We’ll feature greetings and well wishes from many BCs and reminisce about their roles in the show. We’ll check out the latest versions of every regular feature we’ve had on Compulsive Overeating Diary, including Foolish Fun, Mark’s No More Diet for Laurie Report, and Stéfanie’s Secret Topic of the Day. We’ll get another wonderful musical treat from Suz. We’ll go together to my writing group in Burbank, CA and talk to its founder, Samantha Marquis. I’ll read you the latest story I wrote there. Then on Bravery Saturday I’ll take you on my voice acting adventures . We’ll take a look at what it takes to polish a monolog from start to finish. We’ll have interviews with my singing teacher Viki Hilferty, my voice acting coach David Babich, and my voice acting teacher and director Marc Cashman – all sharing with us what it took to make THEIR dreams a success and their advice for us on ways we can try to do the same. It’s an awesome day of memories and surprises. Don’t miss it!

Rocks arranged as the number 100

On the way up to record Day 100, I arrange some prayer rocks in an interesting pattern…

Here I am praying for a break in the rain with my trusty Roland 05 getting ready to record during the storm in Ventura.

Podcast Recap

Taking a chance I grab my umbrella and record from the beach of Ventura in the lull of a rainstorm. I explore how assumptions can derail us from our dreams and goals. We welcome three new brave companions who step forward to share their stories. First is Fernando from Brazil who has just realized emotions play a part in his eating issues, despite feeling too skinny his entire life. Next up is Shell from Wales, who has visual as well as eating challenges and is delighted to find companions via the show. Then comes Vena from Texas who goes on the bravery report for posting her story for all to see on Day 91. Featured too are supportive welcoming comments to Vena’s original post by Cheryl and Stéfanie from Quebec. Chelsea is another new BC who contacted me on Facebook and shares her blog, Random Thoughts. Finally it’s time for another of Stéfanie’s Secret Topics of the Day – In this, the fifth in the series where Stéfanie surprises me, she comes up with a pertinent topic about schedules and social life getting in the way of our goals.
