This morning between the airplanes on final approach and the humming air conditioners, birds were gossiping and making weekend plans, water giggled its way around the fountain and the rich, round laughter of the wind chime entertained me as I sprayed it, like a little kid, while I watered plants on the patio. All was right with the world. Of course, I’m not a kid anymore, but rather than mourning the passing of my youth, I’ve been celebrating my arrival at mid-life all month with a mini-party every day.
Today it’s official, assuming I live for 90 years, I’m halfway there. I appreciate each person who reads and comments here. Many of you have given me high praise. Truth is, it is you who keep me motivated. If my assumption is correct, I am going to be around a while and we still have a lot to talk about, but everything I want to say today has already been said by people much more eloquent than me. So, enjoy this music by the talented James Taylor.
In celebration of my birthday, be sure to take advantage of the discount code GN65A this weekend for half off a copy of Summoning the Strength at Smashwords.com. I hope you’ll read it and share your thoughts with me and maybe even share it with someone you really love.
Here are the answers to yesterday’s words with Honie.
