I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly find – at the age of fifty, say – that a whole new life has opened before you.

After a busy couple of days, and out late two evenings in a row, I crave solitude and silence. It’s my good fortune to look forward to a measure of that today.

As I drove home last evening, I was thinking about how much I enjoy attending talks and classes and how I’d like to do more of that. I’m usually reluctant to go out in the evening; I wake at four or five in the morning and wind down early. Everything’s a choice. I have to ponder that.

Today, writing; and maybe camera play later after a technician comes and goes.

Simple happy.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
  1. When you tell people you get up at 4:00 or 5:00, do they look at you like you’ve got two heads? Yeah, me too! But that’s when I am most “up” and ready to take on the day. I usually do homework then, study for my degree (sign language), take walks once it’s light, and other busy stuff. I need to start writing again, soon I hope. And then I’m ready to get into the jammies by 7:00. I don’t much like going out in the evenings either, though I do make exceptions.

    1. Ha ha! Some do for sure, Karen. Like you, I’m freshest early in the morning. I start to fade late afternoon and bedtime comes early around here. My son and my granddaughter are the same way—my daughter, the opposite. I hope you find time to get back to writing soon. 🙂
