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!
