Turning 50 …. in 2011!

“I wanted to share today a special video to commemorate the 3 year anniversary of my facebook page.

I awoke early one morning a few weeks ago to Rae saying something about how she had to get up and write something down.
By the time I got up several hours later at about 7 AM, she was just finishing. This video is the text of what she wrote that night. She handed it to me to read, and I was flabbergasted. Who is that she’s talking about? Those sound like pretty big shoes to fill, I don’t know if I can do that.


The Universe works in strange ways sometimes, in ways incomprehensible to us as they are happening, but when looking back, the path goes from one way, to another, to another, then all of the sudden you realize, the path…

In the post before this one, I displayed a digital version of this view, earlier in the day.  This capture is later the same day, as the sun was setting.

The view from the dwelling in which I temporarily reside is quite lovely.  Each day, depending on the time, the colors change dramatically.  The digital interpretation above was captured at full sun.  The picture in the post after this entry, is the same scene, much later in the day.


Change Is In The Air

The Lioness has pulled up the roots and her furniture and hit the road.  The winds of change have taken me back to Florida once again.  I lived here 71-82 and back from 86-2005.  It was then that I caught a zephyr to Richmond VA for nine years…..and now I am back where the palm trees dance in the wind and blue skies are the norm, except around  2:00-3:00 p.m. when torrential rains and wind visit each day, it seems.

This morning the sky and clouds are again strong, puffy and blue.  I am not exactly a stranger in a strange land, but in some ways I have had that feeling.  Miami is a very busy metropolis compared to RVA (Richmond, Virginia), as the locals call it.  My guess is the population of RVA is about 250K whereas Miami I think is over 2 million.  I am re-learning my way, in more ways than one, and I definitely see a Garmin in my future.

Old friends have offered warm support and detailed directions to aid in my latest crusade.  I embrace these New Beginnings with optimism and joy.  It is a new day and a place to live and grow, learn, laugh, and create a wonderful now.   Good Morning Florida!

The eyes are the windows to the soul. Animals are creatures on Earth who do have a soul. They are sentient beings. All you have to do is look in their eyes to know that there is a soul inside.

I love cats!!!
