ON THIS 57TH birthday , it seems to me the right time to begin my blog. To write about me and my life, both the good and bad , sad and happy, ludicrous, sublime, well you get the picture. How to start something like this, well i really have no idea but lets take it on a wing and a prayer and hope it all makes some kind of sense. So let's start with the present, a kind reminder of the days events that make you realize that you are loved by many. Just at a time when you need them the most, and there they are reaching out and wishing you well. It is something that touches your heart in ways that being older allows you to feel when the younger you had to much chaos to focus on something so wonderfully sincere. It's amazing to look back and realize some of the things that you missed being distracted with things, people and issues that you can't quite recall yet were so important at the time. Now I am so grateful that those people who still call me friend made it through the chaotic A-D-D times of my life. The people that mean so much to me and who share in the memories and events that led me to this time of my life. I am still able to function in some normal fashion and still have my momentary lapse into A-D-D at times but now it leaves as fast as it comes. Isn't it funny to think that at this time of your life you actually begin to GET IT? Why weren't we handed this information in school? It could have saved a lot of time and stress. Perhaps we were told but if you were anything like me, and it didn't have a DECCA label attached to it then, I wasn't interested. SO for today's post let me thank all my dear loving friends for taking the time to make me feel special. If only for a moment , the love from it all made the rain in my eyes nourish the love in my heart for all of you , you know who you are. I love all of you!
As I continue this foray into blogging you may see yourself in my writing and funny incidents that may jog your memory. Even more I hope that you will share in this journey of sharing our times together. I have no idea how it will turn out but it will fun to release the memory for all to share and laugh and cry. I never thought I would ever begin to turn out a story about me, but hey what the hell it's my life statement and I have a lot to talk about. I will welcome your comments and hope that you will share some of your memories with me and let's write it down for all to see, to read , and to laugh, and possibly cry but most of all to know that we did what Auntie Mame taught us all: TO LIVE,LIVE, LIVE .....BECAUSE LIFE'S A BANQUET AND MOST SONS-O-BITCHES ARE STARVING TO DEATH.
But oh no ....not us.....we did live it.....and are here to tell it.
