This blog is about what road I'm on and my journey in getting there. Maybe with a little work, I'll end up in paradise.

About Me

Just trying to get through life with little regrets.  I find the older I get the more I appreciate the simple things in life.  My friends are fewer, my patience is better, and my mind is healthier.

These days I find myself happier with no man made ceilings or walls around me.  I garden for a profession, which makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever been.

“Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.”  ~ Samuel Ullman

    Sandy,
    Either I didn’t know you at all or you have grown so much that I wouldn’t even recognize you. You should be very proud both of your growth and your creativity. Most of us have long ago given up on the search for our identity and just go from one day to the next. I remember searching for mine and it was such a struggle. I didn’t do it anywhere as well as you are doing it because mine was taken alot from other people’s opinions of me and that is not a true identity search. I love the way yours is so solitary and due to that you will come up with the right answer. I am proud to have met you and glad to have found who you are now. I know I don’t know you but I hope in time to know as much of you as you are willing to let me.
    Your friend,
    Tina
