ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec.8

People who don't know me, or don't read my Blog, sometimes ask me what my Blog is about. What I say makes it seem trite and not what I want to  convey. My intent is not to make it a " what I did all day" experience. What I want is to have the reader know that it is OK to be overwhelmed,to take a chance and maybe not have a successful outcome,but to get out and have a journey, even if the destination wasn't where or what you thought it might be, that having dark feelings is Ok , but so is being truthful and opening your mind to let others in. My Blog started as "It's Never Too Late". I was hoping for a new adventure and a move to Israel. It didn't happen. I was deep into being a care giver. Sometimes , I shared the feelings and insight .I was trying to let people know what it was like. Either you already knew ,you heard my message if you hadn't experienced it yourself, or thirdly, you said to yourself" Thank God, that is not me" as you said to me," I don't think that I could do it". You could . Then came "On the Back Burner". Now, that was my life . Life wasn't bad, it was just put aside for awhile.                                                                                                                       I could catch up later.And I did. I am. "The Best is Yet to Come" is now. And why not. My new feeling of being happy alone, has nothing to do with my love, devotion or admiration for Bob. It is an overwhelming relief to be able to take a deep breath, take a step or  two away from what was and start a what is. So that is what my Blog is about. Just stuff that I think about every day. You know , just living life as it comes and goes. That is what I do all day. Live life.Even if it sometimes is trite. It's me.

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?
