My Life So Far

SO THE CIRCLE BEGINS

SO THE CIRCLE BEGINS So I began my journey from that point of selfishness and insecurity. I suppose many journeys begin for all the wrong reasons, but still get you where you need to go. I had no idea that I was starting a journey, thank goodness. I probably wouldn't have been brave enough. Ignorance is sometimes bliss. I continued to attend all the church activities with my family, but with a different awareness. I began to question in my own mind what was being taught. Wouldn't have dreamed of voicing my doubts so I drifted along in my own way until eventually I dropped out of most church programs. I just didn't feel that what was being taught was all there was. I saw the hypocris

SO HOW DID I GET THIS WAY?

SO HOW DID I GET THIS WAY? I've been asked many times how I got to be this calm and think the way I do about people and life. As usual, it wasn't easy. So I'm going to try to put into words my story. I will probably ramble around a lot as I haven't made an outline--too detail-oriented for me. And I will probably interject current events and thoughts to break up the narrative. If my story helps one person to decide to follow their own path then my effort will be worth it. So here goes...... In the beginning...OK, I won't go back that far.

I just traveled with my husband and he was constantly upset by how things were being done in the different airports. Even though his anger wasn't going to change anything, he insisted on being angry. Now what purpose did that serve? I could agree with him that the airports weren't very organized, but being angry with him wasn't going to change that. S

WALKING ON THE BEACH

I woke up this morning with a back ache so decided to go walking. Went down to the main road, about a block away, the Costenera, and turned south. I could see the ocean, but didn't know what kind of beach would be down there. Eureka! Just around the bend in the road is a nice long beach. There's black sand from the road down to almost the edge of the surf, and then it changes to a shell base right down to the water. I walked through the shells and as a life-long shell collector, picked up a couple as I walked. Nothing spectacular, but it doesn't matter to me. There's about 20 feet of little cone-shaped shells and then several different kinds of clam shells down to the water. A good
