2017 was a rocky year for me - though only in First World terms. It marked the huge change from workin' grl to Laidy of Leeeezure. Yes. I retired in September (like, duh, who hasn't heard me'n'TheBrains yammer on about that ad nausea). Getting to retire was a gift. Being retired is a joy. But getting to retirement was a hard struggle and I wonder if I made it harder than it had to be. Oh well. The good news. I got there At Goal! Yippee.

2018 will be a year of reflection and regrouping for me. I am sure goals will arise. I am sure new pathways will tempt, new horizons will inspire. But what they'll be ... not so sure. I had a spate of medical check-ups in Dec. and Jan and it turns out I am a good bit shorter than I was. 1.25 inches in fact. I am thinking of dropping my goal weight down a few pounds. I want to become a better artist. I do want to take a fancy schmancy vacation. But mostly I am just going to savor this first time without a schedule or a boss since I was 5 years old. Feels durn good.

    Pacing yourself on vacation is really important. Also sightseeing trips always take longer than you plan.

    I love those beautiful shades of blue and island breezes. Just nothing quite like the sea side, toes wiggling in the sand, the salt in the air. When I find some time, I shall have to read the rest of your blogs.

    Enjoy the memories, such heart smiles. I adore strawberries annnnnnnnnd you. I’m in!

    Defy that (negative) voice hat says “I can’t” or “I’m too inexperienced” or “I’m useless”. This voice lies to you in an attempt to convince you that the ability to change s beyond you, when … you ARE capable of banishing this voice … Zach Comm
