There It Is! My View:

If any question remains as to why live in Salt Lake City, let these answer them:

view from everywhere!

Looking down the street to the left, you see the Cathedral of the Madeleine. The bells are delightful, though Rebecca’s nephew curses them, for he lives right next door. The LDS Church paid for the cathedral’s rose window. I love that. In Salt Lake, you find a cohesive sense of fairplay among religious leaders and organizations.

In fact, when the Baptist Church made the misinformed film, “The Godmakers,” a rabbi here wrote a firm, supportive letter to the media describing the decency of this community and its Mormon neighbors. I don’t have details to support this, but I remember it. Examples of this treatment toward one another abound in our history.

Next is the view to the right down the street… that pretty temple: 

Work has yet to be done toward equity here, as elsewhere.

Blessings to all! Go with God or whomever. Love, crh

  1. Hi, I just found your blog. I blog over at fightingmywayback.wordpress.com. I wanted to tell you that I think Salt Lake and the surrounding area is just beautiful and the people wonderful. I spent five months in treatment there and it was an incredible experience. Utah and Salt Lake will always have a special place in my heart. 🙂

    • hi, kate! i have several friends in recovery from eating disorders. i have binge eating disorder, but i don’t see it as debilitating quite like anorexia or bulimia. i’m glad you were able to find the help you needed in such a lovely place. i imagine the beautiful scenery could only help comfort you during such a difficult transition. i hope you continue to fight the fight, breathe deep, and give yourself credit for your successes. i have severe depression and mild anxiety. i know what an unbearably painful experience it can just to wake up some days. be kind to yourself. congratulations!
