Waking UP

I woke up yesterday morning and discovered that WordPress had automatically renewed. I thought I had turned automatic renewal off. At first I was angry with myself for not having turned off the automatic renewal but the thought came to me a bit later that this may be the Universe’s way of sending me a message. I have no clue what I want to write about, if anyone will read it, but all that at this moment doesn’t matter.

The last four years of my life has been a constant stream of change, I’ve been sleep walking. Richard’s illness, his passing, moving to a new home, COVID, and on June 17th 2021 I had to say goodbye to my sweet boxer girl Sophie.

For the first time in 30 years I find myself completely alone. I had forgotten what that was like. Of course 30 years ago I was working, had full days, a busy social life, so different than where I am today. Freedom (well, of sorts, but I don’t wish to talk about COVID and restrictions and all that stuff). What do I do with all this new found freedom!

One day at a time. Slowly waking up. For some reason the things that I enjoyed doing this past year, like writing, have fallen by the wayside. I am not sure why. It’s like that part of me has been shut off. However, I am embracing new adventures, being open to possibilities, being spontaneous, reconnecting with family. A couple of months ago I had the most fun I have had in many years. I went on a junking binge at my old hunting grounds and came home with some great treasures and felt a small spark to create this art piece!

Here’s to 2022 and the new adventures that await me!!

Happy New Year!!

    I’m so sorry to hear about Sophie. We lost Sadie in June of this year as well. Still heartbroken but will get through as we will get a pair this time. So good to hear from you and maybe you could take a trip to Minden, NV for a visit because I would love to see you. Happy New Year my friend and make 2022 a great year with lots of new possibilities and loving memories!
