Well, another year older, another year wiser, right? Right. At least I hope so. That was one of my goals from last year. I wanted to be wiser and more mindful and purposeful in my life. So, yes, I’m 53 and the tunnel I have been talking about since the beginning of this blog, well, I finally made it out – alive. The funny thing is, once I made the resolve to really walk and stop standing still, the tunnel became quite easy to travel. I’m not saying that I didn’t trip and fall or that the dirt was not hard and filled with stones along the way, but I realized that once I really began to walk in earnest and become true to myself, the path became easier to follow. Today, I can feel the entire sun resting on my body and I welcome the rain right behind.

Looking forward, what will be for me? I am dark and I am light. I am joy and I am sad. I am strong, yet often weak. This is all part of my crazy life. But, it’s my life. And with a little help from my friends, anything is possible.

I am a mom, a friend and a survivor of the unimaginable. I’ve even rebounded from the throes of addiction. I am someone with a story to tell. I am a humanitarian, a champion for women, children, elders and animals. I believe in a higher power and find solace in its presence. On these pages, I will share my innermost thoughts … things I find to be incredibly bizarre, thought provoking, amusing or whimsical and sometimes serious. I will speak right from my heart, from years of experience and it is my hope that you take away with you some inspiration and perhaps, with luck, some peace of mind. Consider me a friend and please join me for an exhilarating ride!
