These words resonate with me today in my ongoing practice to keep an open mind and open heart.
“Every one of us is called upon, probably many times, to start a new life. A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, loss of a job…And onward full tilt we go, pitched and wrecked and absurdly resolute, driven in spite of everything to make good on a new shore. To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another — that is surely the basic instinct…Crying out: High tide! time to move out into the glorious debris. Time to take this life for what it is.” by Barbara Kingsolver, From High Tide in Tucson

Slow to warm up meets dive head first into the deep end of the pool. I'm throwing caution to the wind and with arms wide open I'm embracing the thrill of a mid-life career and personal life change. Older adults in America and their loved ones are calling out to me and I'm eager to offer my hand, my mind and my heart in reply.
Never met a furry or feathered friend I didn't love at first glance.
Love, love, love my amazing husband. And my son, I'll be forever in awe that I am privileged to be his mom. He is brilliant, kind, disciplined, with a sense of humor that is unmatched.
