New Page-New Day

It's Never Too late

Every morning the New York Times ,on the front page , upper right, has the local weather report.It is often "cloudy with sunshine".  As a metaphor for life, this is so true.I guess you need to have it both ways or else you get compliant.

Compliant is something ,I think , you don't let yourself become when you live in Israel. From what I read, life can be difficult,you are under threat from your seen and unseen enemies, political parties make strange alliances,traffic is crazy, so, who wouldn't want to live in this place. I call where I now live, Paradise,  and yes, I would give that up to live at the other end of this spectrum.

This move I am planning doesn't appeal to most .I talked to our accountant today about what I would have to do about taxes. He used the words ex-patriot.I had to catch my breath. I never actually considered that.It sounds romantic, but you are agreeing to give up a piece of who you are.Cloudy or sun-you choose because it is never too late.

Good for you! I am deeply touched by you, and your dreams. There's nothing you can't do, if you don't use age as an excuse for not doing. I will miss you.

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?
