Reflecting on getting older


November 1, 2015 Reflecting

As I am now another year older I got thinking or pondering as I say. I started writing my daily sojourns nearly sixteen years ago. I first used a YAHOO group then Myspace and graduated to Word Press and Facebook. I woke up today perhaps the dreary weather is making my arthritis act up, stiff and out of sorts. The miracle of technology provided me this morning with a boost as I received a facetime call from my granddaughter. I had a happy birthday song and was shown my present she had drawn for me.

I enjoy reading and using Ralph Waldo Emerson in my writing perhaps I am an existentialist. I try and encourage my students in high school and college to read and write as much as they can.

“Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

So while my day is changing as I write, my plans today are simple read and prepare for a new college course to teach, write a bit on a chapter I am writing and spend time with my family. I truly want to thank all who have sent birthday wishes and may you all have a blessed and peaceful day. Please keep all in harm’s way on your mind and in your heart and be sure to always give thanks namaste.

My family and friends I do not say this lightly,
