  1. Sometimes I feel like I was living my life and now I am just awaiting the Grim Reaper. Wish I had some good direction for a lot of future that is left.

  2. To be honest I'm not sure. I was thinking the same the other day about am I living my life to the max, and the answer is no. But I'm not sure how to live it to the max either. :D I think in a way we are all awaiting the Grim Reaper, that's why I have faith there is something better after this life.

    1. Joe, I wish I had your confidence. I have actually died once and I didn't see any bright lights :-(

  3. I travel far and wide in my head. I have been fortunate to have done some great trips with my husband. Actually I look forward to doing more travel in the years ahead. Death has touched down all around me in the past several years--so many of my near and dear--and yet I have no sense of my own impending end. I surely must have an inner teenager.

    1. Olga, ron and I did a lot of traveling and it meant the world to me. I was glad to go to Alaska this summer but I am Not really looking forward to any big trips coming up. I do like to travel to my children's homes.

  4. I have been to Canada and Mexico. I still prefer the U.S. Maybe it's just because it's what I know. Actually, I prefer the southern U.S. My next trip will be to Blount County Alabama to dig around in some family history. Then a trip to Cocoa Beach to play with my grandsons. I don't plan much beyond a few months at a time.

    1. Lisa, Canada and Mexico are as far as I have been out of the United States also. I like traveling within the United States the most. Wish I had confidence in an RV and I would get one and just travel coast to coast.

  5. I think as we age life becomes so precious because we do realize deep in our mind, heart and soul that it is finite. We think we must use the time we have left very wisely...but is that use in helping others? doing nothing but enjoying the things we enjoy most? being with family as much as possible? learning as much as we can? No matter what we choose, it makes no difference in that time marches on and that might be why we feel somewhat frustrated.

    1. Tabor, those are the thoughts that keep me in a quandary. I worked so many years outside the home but now I love to be inside my home and feel guilty about it sometimes.

  6. Mostly I just muddle along. Am I living life to the max? No. Do I know what my max is? No. Do I have the energy to try and find out? Probably not. So I suspect I will continue to muddle along, trying not to do harm...

    1. E.C., I'll join you in the muddling along :-)

  7. I have forgotten a lot of where I have been, and have no idea where I'm going... I just don't want it to be very hot...

    1. Brighid, one of my favorite expressions is, " Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?"

  8. I do want to learn to love more so it makes life better and easier for others, even if it is just for a few minutes. When I love more I have less sadness and anxiety. I have more peace.

    1. Birdie, I read a quote this week that our race should be humanity and our religion should be love

  9. Hum, food for thought. I really need to kick my future up a notch. Lately I have just been treading water and that is not my nature. Thanks for making me think in that direction.

    1. Patti, I am running amok, Elephant's Child is muddling along and you are treading water. I guess that's life.

  11. I'm treading water, too, and I'd rather be swimming off to someplace fabulous. This recent move has me sick again; headache, sore throat, cough. I hate being sick and this is the second cold since November. What is life trying to tell me?

    1. Kenju, I think the message is for you to stay put. Too much moving. I hope you get to feeling better very soon

  12. Not quite sure where I want to be. Where I've been is mostly home, as the traveling bug has done gone away for a spell.

    1. G.B., usually the traveling bug hits me the strongest when I'm traveling back home.

  13. Maybe when we die it isn't all bright lights, or maybe we only see the bright lights when we have safely left our body and there's no turning back?

  14. I walk 18 miles per night at work - I'm very tired, but still going to walk home from the library today- Because I can! Too tired to ponder heaven or Hell like Joe- An inbetween to set things right may help...
