ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb 2

I like playing Solitaire on my iPad. I find it mindless and relaxing. I tell myself if I win the more difficult version, I will have a good day. Then I realized that I can replay the same game and by changing one card, I can win. What a revelation. Then I tried to equate this with life's challenges. Can I do the same thing. Change just one little misstep or lemon, and eureka,I am set for a happy stress free life. I wish. How disappointing. I thought that I had figured out the true meaning of life. It's not plastics, it's solitaire. No wonder so many people do just what I am doing. Spending minutes on a game . It's a great thing to do when you are on hold. Or when you really don't want to do anything else, or when you are stalling doing what you should be doing. But on the other hand, you get instant feedback. Either you win or you don't. I always win.

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?
