From Sadness to Gladness

A few days ago I received an e-mail from a good friend. Her brother, who was also a friend of mine passed away earlier that morning. As the tears continued to flow I went through the regular morning rituals. Then, I rowed myself to town to get some exercise while savoring the memories of Mike. It was Mike, who put me on the biggest boogie board ride of my life. Surely, it only seemed logical that after he encouraged me to 'jump, on the count of 3' that he would follow me into the swollen… Continue

Coincidence or Psychic

A few days ago I posted a blog about my new lifestyle as an unwed mate. Having no legal ties, I can't rightfully call myself a housewife. The role I have chosen brings me happiness as I relish the time enjoying the day's parade of wonders with someone who I am intimate with.

What happened to the solo sailor???

Blogging has taken a back seat to living the life of an unwedded housewife. It is a strange new world. Interestingly, I recently met a fellow sailor who made this comment.



     I was a housewife my entire adult life. I wish I had taken on a career, some type of job. Now, at my age (about 55         +/-) I can't find work." The counselor in me questioned her choice of the word can't. Softly I whispered, it is never too late to make a change, learn a new skill, there are jobs…
