Hello to you listening in Chişinău, Capital of Eastern Europe's Republic of Moldova!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday and your host, Diane Wyzga.As the plane began its descent into Madrid, Spain I had made up my mind that I could not, should not, would not walk the Camino de Santiago. I was no pilgrim. I would pick up my pack and catch the next flight. I was going home.What changed? I opened a card from my friend Lorraine that slipped out from between the pages of the guide book I was holding. The card read, “WELL DONE!”Her words continued: As you read this thousands of feet above the earth (how could she have known that?) you may be wondering why I gave you a “WELL DONE!” card to start your Camino de Santiago journey. Regardless of what does or doesn't happen from here on out, you will be forever changed simply because you showed up. And that, my friend, is “WELL DONE!” You have been given so much and have shared that so freely with others. All that you've courageously and deliberately laid down and walked away from in the last few years has led to today so that you are free to pick up whatever lies before you. So, in a word - or two - “WELL DONE!”And the rest, as they say, was Buen Camino. Story Prompt: When has a friend's “Well Done!” moved you out of doubt and into right action? Write that story!Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something. All that matters is you have a story.You're always invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, would you subscribe, share a 5-star rating + nice review on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!Meanwhile, stop by my Quarter Moon Story Arts website to:✓ Check out What I Offer,✓ Arrange your free Story Start-up Session,✓ Opt In to my monthly NewsAudioLetter for bonus gift, valuable tips & techniques to enhance your story work, and✓ Stay current with Diane on LinkedIn.Stories From Women Who Walk Production TeamPodcaster: Diane F Wyzga & Quarter Moon Story ArtsMusic: Mer's Waltz from Crossing the Waters by Steve Schuch & Night Heron MusicAll content and image © 2019 to Present Quarter Moon Story Arts.

AFINA MADOIAN Soul, jazz and pop singer Afina Madoian (who goes by the mononym Afina) was born and raised in Moldova, performing since childhood all over Europe and landing a spot on X-Factor Romania in 2014. The Los Angeles performer with bountiful curly hair, a striking voice and an even bigger heart was granted the prestigious O1 visa for extraordinary abilities in the arts when she was just 19 years of age. Afina's story is one of bravery, intense isolation but most of all of an immigrant artist following her dreams. The powerhouse vocalist speaks Romanian, English and Russian and she is cultured beyond her years, immersed at a young age in Jewish, Greek and Armenian cultures growing up in Moldova. With a recognizable presence, Afina's vocal prowess and stylings may remind listeners of artists like Amy Winehouse, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, and even Beyonce and Whitney Houston.

Three news stories summarized & contextualized by analytic journalist Colin Wright.Note: I'll be visiting family in Seattle all next week, so I won't be publishing normal editions of OSN—instead I've pre-scheduled visual-focused emails (similar to what paid subscribers get on Saturdays, but with two visuals instead of four) for the days I'll be away. Sorry about the change-up, but things will be back to normal Monday the 25th and I hope you enjoy those in the meantime :)Libyan rivals 'coordinating over flood relief'Summary: In the wake of heavy rainfall that caused floods which burst dams, which then triggered more, heavier flooding, the two rival governments that run the eastern and western portions of Libya have told the United Nations they're coordinating with each other to deploy relief efforts throughout the region; more than 5,300 people have been confirmed killed by these floods, so far, and officials have said the death toll could reach 20,000 in the coming days.Context: In addition to those confirmed deaths and the number of people still missing, tens of thousands of people have been displaced, their homes completely destroyed or washed out to sea, and there are concerns that disease could become an issue, too, due to the large number of bodies that have yet to be recovered from the rubble; Libya has been split between these two governments since the fall of the previous ruler, Muammar Gaddafi, in late-2011; these rival groups were at all-out war with each other until 2020, at which point tensions eased, but there are still periodic skirmishes between them, and this discordance in leadership has resulted in all sorts of issues, including difficulties responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, and difficulties maintaining public infrastructure, like the aforementioned collapsed dams.—BBC NewsOne Sentence News is a reader-supported publication.
