Back to the path

Today, it has started again, that pounding feeling in my head about writing. As I think about “our life in the moment” and all the moments that have gone by so very quickly… I realize that these past few months I have again allowed the ever present, stand in front of you, distractions!! How have I come to be here? Here, in the frame of the quickly ending November? As my mind searches back,visions come into play: I retired, the getting ready of selling the Montana house, then it is sold. Next the journey to Arizona and then??
It is the last week of July. It is sweating hot, I must empty the u-haul, must get settled, have company coming!!! And so passes August.. Then September sneaks around the corner with it’s unforgiving distractions and responsibilities. My aging fur baby (MaggieMae) is not doing well, my life partner is in and out of the hospital and our rental is expiring!!! Life’s unexpected entries that changes ones plans is in the works and no one can control it! The month goes on, prayers and research and love move toward the undying and relentless “I can fix it theory”!! Things are looking up…
I find a 6 month rental to keep us on our journey. The fur baby has recovered as best as possible for an old girl. My partner, well, a new beginning is emerging. He is definitely improving,the light has gotten brighter, the moments worth every ounce of effort as the results are proving uplifting and exciting. New found opportunities, energy and motivation are emerging and life seems to be getting back on track!
We have now been in our new rental for almost 2 months and everyone is doing pretty good for old timers. We have some exciting ideas and events to look forward to. Thanksgiving was one of absolute thankfulness and feeling extremely blessed. All of this has led me back to the path and desire to write. It has been awhile and fingers for typing need oiling but my heart and my soul are definitely in it again!
“Share the love and enjoy all your moments!!”

A New Journey Begins!


A new journey begins

A vision, a dream… the time is finally here. The gathering of minutes, hours, days, years and now it is here. Maybe to travel across the country, to see family and friends, to enjoy the riches of the earth, to sit back and gaze at the stars. Maybe fish in a brook, paint or write… the options are numerous! I wait in anxious excitement to step into the discovery of this new journey.

There is much to do / to prepare!! There are decisions to be made. There are motor-homes to look at!!!

Lions and tigers.. Oh my!! Oh but what fun it will be!!!

Deep in thought!

January 1, 2016!!! I was so caught up… so busy at work… so tired when I got home…  and on and on went the reasons and the time!!!

Today, for some unknown reason, I began to flip through the blogs of those I follow but have not visited for quite sometime.  I started flipping through the post’s of past, discovering how much has happened and changed! I cried, I smiled and I gazed into space pondering the stories and life changing events that have happened to those I have come to know through their blogs and post of sharing……

I realize it is a new year, a time that lends itself to think about the past and the future… it awakens something deep inside and calls out…..

I must, somehow, get back….  it is after all a new year!!!


Tonight my dog won🙀

Funny, funny😄😄 I was laughing so hard… My MaggieMae has been on some medicine and it was the last pill. The only way to get her to take the pill is to hid it in some yogurt. She absolutely loves yogurt so onto the spoon it went buried in the luscious treat…. Well yogurt was everywhere, over her mouth and nose, the floor, my fingers and half gone But the pill still remained!!! I could not believe it!! She got her treat put there on the floor sat her pill. She was so proud of her win. I would have taken a picture but my hands were covered with yogurt 😊 Boy am I glad that was the last pill😳. 

It’s been awhile !!

Wow, I can’t believe it has been so long since I have written a post!! Sometimes life just seems to fly by so fast…. I need to stop, take a breath and slow down. I enjoy blogging and I enjoy reading all the different blogs so I need to make it more of a priority. It is a relaxing time to let ones mind go free, to drift between the words and let go… It is also a time to read other posts and take in the thoughts, the knowledge, the journeys and stories of what others have to offer. The funny, the serious, the happy – the sad…. all of it a life’s experience and a chance to get close to others like myself…. What a wonderful place to be!! Let us blog, let us post and let us share….

Life in the moment

Just when you think you get it….  Oops   what was that?  A fleeting something? More than that? Should I pay attention or let it go?  After all LIFE is what we make it….

Like how about this annoying woodpecker I’ve been chasing all around the house this morning. This persistent red headed bird just loves our windows!! Beautiful but annoying! Ah, it is finally quiet… I think I am in luck… “red” has gone somewhere else for his insects… at least for the moment!
