Hospital Volunteers

  A Writer’s Journey… I’m almost done with my  Scent of a Husband novel. Yesterday I did research by going to a hospital. I had a few what if questions so I could get some facts right. I also wanted clarification on what hospital volunteers do and why they volunteer. First people volunteer for various reasons: 1. They want to work in the medical field. 2. Retired or Widowed and looking for something meaningful. 3. They received invaluable support while a love one was in the hospital. 4. They themselves were patients and appreciated the comfort tthey were given. 5. They want to give back to the community. I interviewed the President of the Hospital Auxiliary of Volunteers. After speaking with this gentleman, who willingly gave his time, I am now thinking I’d like to someday volunteer my time.     “I, Diana Lynn, believe that everyone deserves a rainbow and I inspire women to discover who they are.” http://blog.dianalynnwrites.com “Like” Diana Lynn on Facebook

Improved Safety for Pedestrians and Bicyclists

Below is a letter I wrote to my local town paper. I’m hoping others might see this and take the survey by going either link (Facebook or blog). Dear Editor of Castro Valley Forum, I’m writing this to help get the word out… It was recently brought to my attention that there is a group, BikeWalkCV,https://bikewalkcv.wordpress.com/ working to make improvements to Castro Valley by adding sidewalks and bike lanes. I visited them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/bikewalkcv and I found it interesting that there were only 128 likes. There could be more now as I invited my friends to “like” the page. I’m under the impression that not many of us here in Castro Valley are aware of the campaign being made to Nate Miley and the Alameda County Public Works. By visiting their blog or Facebook page citizens are urged to take a survey and voice our priorities for Castro Valley. I think it’s a shame that pedestrians have to walk in the street when no sidewalk is available. What’s worse is seeing someone pushing a stroller…

Reviewed The Royals, Volume 1: Eddie by Missy Kirtley Fun read. I really enjoyed the story. This was written by a friend of mine. Her concept was to use familiar stories told in new and intriguing ways. Check here for the ROYAL book link “I, Diana Lynn, believe everyone deserves a rainbow and I inspire women to discover who they are.” http://blog.dianalynnwrites.com “Like” Diana Lynn on Facebook
