Current Update: Dorothy can see that another year is coming to an end, as she sees some Christmas decorations starting to appear around the Bay Area. She feels that in the past, the Christmas mood has started right after Thanksgiving but nowadays it can be seen just after Halloween. On Thanksgiving, Dannika will be back for the weekend and she will then begin her likely final year in college basketball. Dorothy has made a point to try to catch as many of her games as possible. The holiday season is the busiest and usually most joyful time of the year for Dorothy with plenty of family gatherings. Aside from Thanksgiving and Christmas, Dorothy also has many birthdays among friends and relatives she is looking forward to celebrating.


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
