I know, It’s been ages since I’ve written; but I really have been busy with life.
When we moved to the “space coast” 8 years ago, I really didn’t like the change. Of course I don’t like change, anyway. It took me a while to realize that I was experiencing age prejudice when applying for work. I never realized that I was “over the hill” in my 50’s, what a shock.
What I have learned from these years is patience, and to slow down. As an energetic, self-starting person, this was very difficult. I do think I have slowed down considerably, now. A car accident, and resulting treatment were major contributing factors.
You have to take the good with the bad, this is life. I am blessed because things could have been much worse for me. I have good people on my side and I am thankful for that. I have good health and love in my life. I have great family and friends.
So, as I leave Florida for the most part, and move on; I head toward another chapter in my life. As the GEN-X’s like to say, it’s all good!
Here is a poem from the up and coming book, A Redhead Looks At 60!
