I am thinking of changing my sub title to " the best is yet to come ". I've been" it's never too late" and " on the back burner". Now it is another adventure for me. I am 83 almost 84. I figure that I will live to be 100. That is very doable here in Venice. I don't recommend this, but I have friends in their 90's who still drive. I try not to be on the road when I think that they are out and about.  But "the best is yet to come" just came to me as I read our Cantor's advice to live in the present and to enjoy life. I will not define myself as a widow . I am still me.  I am sad, but joyful. I am free to explore. Being free does not mean that I am less sad. There is a notch in my heart. But I am still alive and ready to see what is ahead. Bring it on. I'll meet it half way.

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?
