“Ah yes, irony! Beware of the irony that flourishes here, my good engineer. Beware of it in general as an intellectual stance. When it is not employed as an honest device of classical rhetoric, the purpose of which no healthy mind can doubt for a moment, it becomes a source of depravity, a barrier to civilization, a squalid flirtation with inertia, nihilism, and vice.”

–Thomas Mann, from “The Magic Mountain” (1924).

Immediately after the yearning, a strong feeling of fear came up telling you all the reasons why you shouldn’t go. Using the tips I share, you can replace your fear with confidence and immediately begin traveling anywhere in the world. You will experience being stress-free as the routines of being at home fall away like litter by the roadside. Your excitement bubbles over as you create friendships with new people. 2 p.m., at the Hilton Garden Inn, 55 Town Center Blvd, Palm Coast, admission fee is $10 (to be donated to the Scholarship Fund). Friends, family and the entire community are invited to attend. Come join us for an educational and fun afternoon. Reserve your spot by sending an email to Donna Daly Boggs (and pay at the door).
Oct. 4: The St. Johns River Water Management District will holds the first of two community meetings on the Flagler County Wetland Restoration Project, designed to increase the amount of wetland area. 5:30 p.m. at Flagler Beach City Hall, 105 S. 2nd St., Flagler Beach. See the webpage, www.sjrwmd.com/facts/flagler-wetland-restoration-project/, updating the project. For input, write at FlaglerRestoration@sjrwmd.com. The wetland restoration project will consist of moving piles of spoil back into man-made ditches and grading the material to the elevation that matches nearby remnants of natural wetland. The project will return dozens of acres of ditches and spoil piles to functional wetland that will yield food for fish and wildlife, filter and clean water, and provide other benefits. The second meeting is on Nov. 7.

    A combination of great weather and many incentives makes for a great weekend in Flagler County , especially in the Palm Coast area, so for those of you that have always dreamed of buying your first home, here’s your opportunity to learn about different options available. So starting with area residents being invited to attend a free housing fair and financial wellness clinic to learn about various programs available for down payment assistance, owner-occupied rehabilitation, mortgage products and strategies to avoid foreclosures. And for fun, there’s so many things to do since I’m new to the area so far I’m really enjoying it, Happy New resident 😉
