New Year.....New Blog?

Happy New Year to all. It's been a rough January, full of excitement and resolutions. Nothing new there, right? Well, just one thing. I come to this blog so seldom lately that I need to be reminded of it. Not a good thing. Besides, the Internet seems to be full of people wanting to tell us about their ideas and their lives. There is so much to tell, that reading what other people write is not interesting anymore. We put our thoughts out there..... but people are not pausing long enough to read anything.

With this in mind...and with the sad reality that I have been doing this for years and still forget it sometimes....that there is less and less to write about that doesn't make me nostalgic or sad, because I am looking back or in the wrong direction!!!....I am absolutely changing the tone of my posts, moving on, even changing names, blogs, whatever. So necessary. In my last post, four months ago, I said that we needed to go out and get what we wanted and do what we love, why not?. Enjoy every minute of the years that we have left (we, of course, meaning those of us of advancing years!!!). Remember, we do not have 50 or 60 years ahead of us....with that in mind, I have decided I am doing just that.

No more ramblings about the dreariness of life, the trips to visit Mother, the nostalgic posts about places I lived in, visited or miss. Nothing whatsoever about about the weather and the packing and moving, the family, the friends that have left or passed away, much less the plans for this or that. From now on, it will be the what I'm doing that I always wanted to, the places I finally visited and the things I finally did. Sounds wonderful, don't you think?

It's a new era, a new dawn.....nothing dramatic or earthshaking...just life changing!!!

Thank you for following my posts on this blog, for your comments and your encouragement. Thank you for being there, part of my life and my memories. I will keep you posted on the changes. I now want you to follow my new journey and I intent to make it fun!!
