Kitty Lynn Obituary

Because of their language challenge between them, I learned early how to intuit a situation from the immediate surroundings maybe in some fashion like a bird or a fox. Either choice will have brought valuable insights. To honor nature, who is ourselves, seems to make the most sense to me in my search of my one luxury item. How did you come to work in this position? This story originally appeared in the March 28, 2018 edition of the. But I am not a sensible writer or hiker. I wear multiple hats, but my main job is inspections and teaching classes on fire safety.

What do you like most about your work? I used to cut through the woods on little paths made by animals that were barely visible from outside of the minutia of rut carved by scurrying claw, paw or hoof. I work at Ravenscliffe and used to catch the same bus with Kitty where we would also catch up about our family's. I love to write, so that part of my job allows me to use that skill. Fire department responses and residential fires decreased in the five-year grant period. As the years passed Kitty couldn't manage public transport so we would catch up whilst she sat in her garden whilst I waited for a bus. Are these my excessive luxury items not fitting themselves into my turtle shell backpack? To this day, I could not write anything without nature being behind everything. Great respect goes to hikers who have sojourned the footpath of the Appalachian Trail and all the fabulous trails, whatever length, time, hardship or sacrifice endured.

I feel that I must write more than I feel that I must hike. An excessive pronoun here, a non-sequitur there, battling spell check for my version of the word. It was so much fun to put them all together. A Look at My Appalachian Trail Story dragonpond I have hiked since I can remember. James Moeser was chancellor then, and the University had received a really cool grant to start the Employee Part-Time Undergraduate Degree-Completion Program, so I was able to transfer my coursework to Carolina and finish my creative writing minor.

So sorry to hear the news of Kitty's passing. On any given day, I may be writing an article for the emergency coordinator newsletter, responding to a call about a hazardous chemical spill with the emergency response team, talking to building occupants about how to keep exits clear or teaching a fire extinguisher class. Hopefully one day I will hike the whole Appalachian Trail or any of the many long distance trails; the Eastern Continental Trail, Continental Divide Trail, High Sierra Trail or the Mountains to Sea Trail in North Carolina. My trails growing up were out my back door. .

I pour everything on the page and start picking up the spilled equipment as it falls unwieldy from my backpack onto the path. But I realize that my luxury items are my house, job and animal companions. Overall, it made the University safer. One day, will I abandon my laptop-window-post to wear boots and to forget the past by living in the moment to walk on the very ground that promises that dust will take us back to dust from whence we came? I will certainly miss our. Should I hike or should I write? Wait-where did that promise come from? What an beautiful travesty we are; I fear that our culture has totally lost its way, though the trailhead is right here in front of us. Sensible writers write light and edit.

But of these physical comforts and securities, none can compare with being in the woods surrounded by trees that smell of rain, honey, fermenting melons and wild raccoons. I became a firefighter in 1990. Oh, did I mention that I used to be a firefighter? I couldn't get time off work to come to the service but I thought of Kitty on Tuesday and said a prayer for her. I write all of the emergency coordinator newsletter articles. Our department offers classes twice a year in the Pit for students and the public: one during the Week of Welcome and one during our Fire Safety Fair in September. We have 250 emergency coordinators on campus who oversee evacuations, and they need to be trained, so the newsletters function as a training tool.

She doted on her family and was proud of everyone of them. It allows me to learn about other people and hear their stories. Sensible hikers pack light and stash one luxury item. Most fun I ever had was to try to tame words into a cohesive sentence after swimming in the moonlight. Many rows of acorns dug into the ground just two inches from all the others. Right now, I am a quiet wanderer through my own imagination. As an adult, my trails still live close to me, in my hopes and dreams for tomorrow not living in the moment.

I worked on a truck and all of that, then became an inspector and fire marshal, then got the position here as a fire safety professional. . . . . . .
