Here is this woman who has lived more years than she could imagine that summer day when she was seven, and even twenty seemed an impossible reach, when children who were a vague fantasy, are now three maturing adults, when a husband who was a shimmering fairy tale, is now thirty five years of history. Here is a woman who is not old, and is not young, but remembers youth and visits there sometimes, who imagines age (and sees it settle slowly on her face) but shrinks from that encroachment. Here is a woman who has more than she thought she would, but even so, , not as much. Here is a woman who has seen death take, and birth present. Here is a woman who has had longing fulfilled and, not fulfilled, who has dreams still creating, still waiting, who is alive, and well, and healthy, but wants to explore the upper limits of these gifts. Here is a woman who is grateful, knowing happiness is not possible if gratitude is unknown. Here is a woman who knows Body is beautiful, compelling, irresistable, but Spirit is eternal, transformative, the vehicle of awe. I greet you.
To live a long life that is full of energy, and vigor. To be always curious, always enquiring, always discovering, always learning. To cultivate a generous heart and Spirit. To allow no walls that forbid the wonderous, the supernatural, the unknown. To never be above my ideal weight, and perhaps be five or ten pounds below, since that weight is generous and I lived decades below it. To always have a beautiful garden out my door. To paint and write and overcome enertia. To conquer fears. To see my son finally happy. Amen

Love your page. I'm new here and just learning to navigate around. Your writing painted a beautiful picture in my mind and your home is lovely. What "sparked" me to strike up a friendship was a picture in your photos. You described your nephew as Teagen...My beautiful one year old granddaughters' name is Teag. In gaelic it means "little poet". I am so excited about the energy in this community. It only takes a spark to light a friendship flame. Wow...I almost made myself sick with that syrupy line...que sera sera!

Jen, on my screen, there is a Share Page thing on the whole bottom of my screen. In the right corner there is a little looking glass icon. If you click that, it says Meebo or you could probably google it, if it isn't on your screen. Anyway, once you sign up it shows how many of your Sparkfriends are off or online and you can then click and the names are up there. Then you just start typing back and forth. Let me know if you are successful. It is fun!
