Gender Female
Location Southeastern U.S., United States
Introduction This Journal is being written for my pleasure, my children and my grandchildren. Sharing some of my past, present and thoughts for future. It is the Journal of a sensitive soul who has entered her 8th decade. My life journey has taken me down a lot of roads with many twists and turns. It's not the journey that I would have visualized at the age of 25 when a third child was on the horizon. I love the warmth of the sun, sound of rain, a crackling fire, simplicity and elegance. Find pleasure in sitting on my porch with tea in a china cup and digging in the earth. I am more myself at this time of life than ever before. A considerable part of my past was in the business world, multi tasking and being super organized. Today I am trying to simplify and be more mindful. Also learning about this journey through aging and Sjogren's Syndrome. It is not as easy as I thought, even though I have a lot of solitude at this time of life. My days fly by and I do not think I have enough time left on earth to do and experience all that is the desire of my heart. One thing I am sure of is that I could not make it on this journey without my daily prayer and meditating time.
Interests gardening, cooking, reading, walking, music, photography, meditating, the ocean and most of all my children and grandchildren.
Favorite Movies I am still thinking!!! I am usually reading.
Favorite Music Enya, Josh Grobin, Polar Shift, the Eagles and James Taylor to mention a few. I also love meditating and spiritual music.
