my name is curt canada and i live in washington dc

i love and live to make a difference in others lives especially for our forgotten seniors and the less fortunate.

recently i launched the yellowbluehouse project which represents  this real present day story i am about to share with you!

while walking my dog, i ran into an elderly woman who lives in this little old house that has shown a lot of wear and tear. most of the paint had fallen off  and the roof looked a little suspect. The windows appeared opaque. over the past five months we have had small talk until now.

in the back of my mind i was orchestrating how i could get some friends and other volunteers together to paint the exterior portion of her house this spring.  That’s the least i could do , I thought?

she has since given me permission to do the work at no cost to her. However, there’s more pressing issues in which i have recently found out.

 Maybe you will help me help her? See, there’s more to this story.  Yes, there’s a huge whole in the back room(the unfinished addition), plumbing issues, trash collection (junk in backyard, kitchen ceiling repair, and more…) i am determined to do all i can do to help remain at home.

 I am presently seeking assistance locally. ” Yes, i can use your help , words of wisdom, and any financial contributions to further this  project and all future ongoing projects !  Email me if you have further questions! see ya soon…. They say “dream Big…’

So what do you think? Are you sitting on the seat of your paints, got your pant down at half mass or you’re actually beginning to tighten your belts! Whatever you choose to do just take a deep breath and start to acquire all the knowledge on becoming your own “change agent.”  Just for starters, there’s absolutely nothing negative about this unless you have problems with change. See, you can’t get around it or away from it. Change is happening at an enormous rate. You probably have experienced it and definitely you have noticed it in the last two weeks, if not,t hree months!  I had planned on deleting this blog just hours ago but I thought about the fact that we’re in dire situations, especially on the economic front here and abroad.  What are your new year goals, plans, or resolutions if I may ask? Don’t look for health care cost do go down anytime soon. Better yet, find all the ways you can to keep yourself and your family and your friends healthy!  Here ‘s a  few tips: Try yoga even if it’s your first time, meditate ,yes, get away from the immediate dire thinking for a moment, start group walking tours , start bartering when possible, and rip all the coupons you can from those newspapers and on-line coupon sites. I have become addicted to the news media, especially CNN.  The best thing you can do this year starting today is to refrain from watching any of those folks. Twitter if you have too. It just might be healthier. I’m sure you have a few recommendations for our dire world so drop me a comment if you like…  Remember the new mantra today and repeat after me ” we are evolving“.  See, that’s a little more positive and natural!  Whata yuuothink?
