It's Never Too Late

 My musing about making Aliyah by a women , in later life, might appeal to someone who is hampered by thinking it's too late to start over. Since I have reinvented myself once, and I am a better reinvention,how hard will it be to do it again. I am much better than the first person that I was, so this now second person that I will become, should be fantastic. Right?

When I moved to Florida and reinvented myself the first time , I became a worker bee. I volunteered at the Temple, I met people, I made friends,I took on leadership roles, I invited people to dinner, I opened up me, I grew. This was a new me. I never did these things before. It was a conscious act of survival, really. If I choose to sit it out, I would be still sitting.

There was/is another reason for reinventing me, if I die here, who would come to my funeral. Think about it.I want to go out missed and loved.

I'm working on it, Because it is never too late.

Yes...Yes...Yes. This is a poem to the meaning of getting older...getting older is getting better, if you accept and embrace growth and change

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
