Farewell Fawnskin


Hey! It’s GG! Have you missed me?

Truth is that each Thanksgiving reminds me to be grateful I am still alive but also makes me ponder Fawnskin.

If you missed the update last year, read Fawnskin Revisited for the story.

I figured one last post is in order.

Now despite rumors about being run outta town–the truth of the matter is that I left two years ago due to health hazards under the house I had rented.

You probably had no idea that I returned for a time last winter, staying into the spring. The main reason was to be closer to my doctors and to continue healing–which has taken some time.

Truth be told, recovery from toxic mold exposure can take 2-5 years. It is hard to believe that the 29th of November marks two years on this journey.

The upside is my progress has been steady. Plus, all the info I have gleaned means that I am in discussions about a book project that will hopefully be of help to others.

My healing began to progress at a faster rate upon my return to sea level this year perhaps due to the ocean air, higher oxygen content and good vibrations.

The quality of life is returning as body systems return to normal. The excess weight is dropping off and I am able to be more active once again.

At the moment I am staying in a charming town. Close by are a museum, library, aquarium and a lot of other amenities. Instead of hiking lakeside, up Grout Creek or in the woods, I now stroll seaside.

Last week’s excitement was riding a bike for the first time in eons. It wasn’t something I could do even six months ago.

Having first landed on the mountain back in 1987 and then settling into Fawnskin in the early 2000s, it seems strange to be starting over–but life is full of possibilities.

And so, I’ve closed my PO Box and made all the official changes necessary for the leap.

Farewell Fawnskin!

    Thanks so much for all your posts.

    I say I left Fawnskin in 1972 after High School but you never really do… It will always be a part of your life.

    You are in our prayers for your health GG.
