Our outdoor walks cured just about everything. Dorothy’s passion and sense of adventure ensured joy in the present moment. Exploring paths I had never before considered, I felt a new level of contentment. Well-traveled both stateside and abroad, she told me, “There is life outside of here,” and expanded my limited view of the world. During our time together I received honors grades and, for the first time, felt comfortable with those whose lives were foreign to mine.
Following graduation, I worked for a time in the intensive care unit of my hometown hospital. Then, with Dorothy’s words in mind, and one hundred fifty dollars in my pocket; with neither job prospects nor a place to live, I moved to Colorado. What I did have was confidence in myself, and the trust that things would work out well. I owed much of that to my friendship with Dorothy.
