My Thoughts by Michele Harvey Sentiments About My Life In Julian Sometimes I get real sentimental and this seems to be one of those weeks. I moved to Julian with my family during the first weekend in February of 1984. Fortunately for me, George Orwell was wrong and 1984 was a very good year for me. Julian has been good for me. A friendly town, it has shown kindnesses to me when my personal trials were the worst. Julian has all the nicest qualities of a small town. Gossips are everywhere and so is kindheartedness. For people who open themselves up to the hospitalities offered here; it is a very good place to live alone with the splendors of nature and it is also a good place for people who like to get involved in community activities. In 1987 we moved from downtown Julian to Whispering Pines. Though it bent at both ends of our property, the road was flat in front of our house and all of the neighborhood boys played baseball on a diamond that they spray painted on the road. It was easy to hear vehicles approaching from several blocks away, so I never worried about my boys getting hit by a speeding car. In winter they all sledded on the snow covered hills that are the every day roads that twist and turn throughout Whispering Pines. In the middle of the night, which was their favorite time to take out their sleds, and all available trash can lids, they were able to sled along the roads because the air was so quiet, moving cars and trucks could be heard before they got within two miles of the sled runs. Though we had little money for entertainment, on our half acre and in our home, I got to see my sons growing up as active children. Not exactly Tom Sawyers or Huck Finns, that generation of children grew up with lots of good memories that had to do with activities that were good for their growing bodies and their growing minds. Though I regret not spending more time one on one with my children doing homework and motivating them toward higher education; their father and I spent many hours along with other dedicated adults developing sport programs for our local youth. We and our friends built the ball fields that are today's Jess Martin Park. We developed sports programs that taught children the importance of working as a team. I also was a co-chair the first year of the Senior Class Auction at Julian High School and chaired it the following two years to give it a solid base for all of the auctions that have come since. I was a Cub Scout leader and a trainer of Cub Scout leaders. I was prop master for two big productions put on by the Julian Junior Theater. Some years when I wasn't working full time for a paycheck; I volunteered as many as sixty hours each week and wasn't alone. Other years I served on boards of directors for Intermountain Parks and Recreation and all of their sports boards. I was treasurer of the Julian Merchants Association for more years than I remember and head of Julian Education Foundation. In those ways and many more; I became an active member of my community. It has been a wonderful wayto make lasting friendships. Some of mine go back to the first months I lived in Julian over twenty-five years ago. In 1996 I divorced my children's father and I moved to Wynola where I have lived for the past fifteen years, ten of them with my husband Mike. Wynola has been good to me too. It's known as the Banana Belt of Julian since the elevation is about 400 feet lower that downtown Julian and the temperatures and amounts of snow tend to be much less harsh than in Julian. Last July I moved my business, Julian Yesteryears, to Wynola Farms Marketplace. In the old Manzanita Ranch building, we are a community of shops. On Sundays a Farmer's Market is added to the variety of businesses where goods can be bought. Some Sundays we get to hear live music from local musicians who are seldom heard otherwise. The Marketplace has the kind of laid back atmosphere that works well for me these days. Though I still do a bit of volunteer work, my volunteering is more behind the scenes. I'm no longer on any boards of directors and I prefer staying out of any limelight. At this time in my life I can be more effective this way and I can accomplish a lot more to help others. I'm like many people who like to help others, yet don't want to be singled out. Sometimes it's best to help people very quietly. Before I moved to Julian, I grew up in rural La Mesa. My mother grew up in a rural San Diego where her parents helped others. She carried on and I've done the same. I feel better when I spread my wealth, even when my wealth may be an extra piece of fruit, or a loaf of bread, or an hour or two of my time. When I decided to move with my family to Julian; I knew that I wanted to volunteer my time in this small community to do my part in making it the best it can be. I sometimes think that I sound like I'm lecturing people on ways to help others. I'm not, and I don't judge people by how much or how little they give to their communities. As I wrote here in my first sentence; I'm feeling sentimental and my sentiments along with my memories are filled with the many hours I've spent as a volunteer. Those hours are precious to me. They are in their way, my epitaph. Though I don't expect to die any time soon; I can look back on my life, particularly my years in Julian and be satisfied that I've done what I can to make the world I live in a bit better for those who follow in my steps. I've made lasting friendships with people who apparently feel the same as I do. I feel very privileged to have the friends I have and I feel that we are all special because of the way we became friends. These are my sentimental thoughts.
