I feel as if layers are being peeled off of me. I am not experiencing any stress. I am not sure if what I am experiencing will be my norm, but it is good. The fact that I feel so good, being by myself shouldn't diminish the life I had for almost 65 years with Bob. This is just another dimension, another phase, another time, another experience, another me. I went out to lunch today and I went out to dinner. Could I have done this before. Probably yes, but , I didn't. I really couldn't have and not felt as if I was neglecting Bob. For years I have heard that only you are responsible for your happiness and I have had a problem with that. If you are a couple, you  both are responsible for happiness.  Being alone, I am only responsible for my happiness. And I intend to work to make myself happy.

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?
