Per Designing Your Life’s instructions, I’m drafting 3 odyssey quests this year, so I can evaluate 3 different lives, and 3 different 5-year-long game plans, to ultimately determine the best direction to go as a writer, and to continue healing my spiritual self until I build a positive life.
To prepare for these drafts, I thought I ought generate a few lists of potential odysseys.

In My Life Today 💙 Who Is This?
The PicsArt image is a #freetoedit remix. Honestly, I wish I could locate who the woman is, but I remixed from someone else’s remix, and I lost the rabbit hole. If someone can locate her, I’d like to give her credit for providing the originals for this image.
Listening to Now 💜 Calming Piano
Regardless which odyssey quests I decide on, I’m still going to teach community college at Fresno City College and College of the Sequoias, as well as push for substitute teaching with Fresno Unified, because I find value in providing a safe learning space to children and young adults within Fresno, Clovis, Madera, and Visalia.
