Happy holidays from Randy, Tracy, and Autumn!

I still well recall the excitement I felt as a boy when the Christmas season approached. It wasn’t just Christmas morning when presents were opened, though I certainly loved that time too. It was the cheery greetings that flowed from a larger community of people willing to reach out. It was the festive lights, music, and even the crisp air which invigorated me.

Today there is still magic for all of those things, and the spirit of joy and kindness which is encouraged so much more. I believe very strongly that we have the opportunity to fill our entire year with the kind of positivity and enthusiasm which I felt and still feel during the holidays.

I believe the greatest gift to our own spirit, the best uplifting of our own emotional health, is achieved when we find ways to help others. Our efforts with 2020 Vision Quest are a means by which the incredible team provides such help to a much larger community. I am, however, most blessed with the chance to regularly and directly hear the many positive interactions which follow our presentations. Each time someone shares appreciation in all the myriad ways, I am receiving the best Christmas gift ever. In this way, 2020 Vision Quest fills my life with positivity — and while Christmas with Tracy and Autumn will be very special, I get a most precious gift all year long.

I wish for all of you the peace, love, and joy for the season and the rest of the year!

This year included two significant changes for the New Hampshire Association for the Blind. As both we at 2020 Vision Quest and I personally provide significant support to this organization, I thought it appropriate to share the news officially on our blog as well.

In April, CEO at the time George Theriault announced formally that he would be retiring. With nearly thirty years of incredible support for the organization, many of those as CEO, George wanted to ensure a smooth transition for the organization. I’m incredibly appreciative of the incredible work and success George enabled the organization to achieve and wish him well in his retirement.

This created a challenge and an opportunity and I was fortunate enough to work with the succession committee to help determine the ideal candidate to help take NHAB forward. We have indeed found who we believe is an ideal candidate: David S. Morgan. I’ve already begun to enjoy the benefits of building our working relationship as he undertakes the responsibility and privilege of guiding this great organization into the future.

Here is the official press release as shared on NHAB’s website and around the country.

David Morgan also sat down with Concord TV’s Doris Ballard to share his experiences and his goals for the future of NH residents living with low vision or blindness:

I’m thrilled to share my second TEDx talk with all of you! My first talk was centered on the notion of how all of us can and should reach for our peak potential. This second talk was asked to fit to the theme of a “Brand New Day” and put focus upon a valuable perspective on Transition Trauma and Social Risk Management.

You may recall that back in October I shared how I develop a presentation as I prepared to give the talk and now you can directly see the results below. I also include that blog link here so you can perhaps gain insight into the process and compare the two different talks.

If you, as I do, believe there is value in these talks, please consider sharing them with all those who might similarly benefit. Thank you again for the tremendous support which helps inspire me to be reaching for new heights!
