I have been away far too long.  The thought of blogging has seemed
daunting to me.  Since my illness, and now my recovery, I have
looked at life in a very different way.  Instead of trying to keep up with 
the standards that other bloggers have set, and my own previous
standards, I have decided to treat this platform as a daily diary.
A stream of consciousness if you will.  

What I have learned from facing death is to only be concerned 
about two things ... treating others kindly and to be true to 
myself.  No pretenses.  No efforts to follow trends, or compete
with others.  You will come to know me as I am.  Life is meant to
be enjoyed and shared with others, even in this age of Covid.
I hope that you will come to visit.  

Love,
Susan and Oliver

  1. YOU do whatever you want! It's your blog! I'm blogging less and less as I hate the pressure it puts on me, to try to do it more often. I decided I'd just do it when the whim strikes me or I have something to share. I'm trying to slow down with the expectations I put on myself. I'm also going to try much shorter blogs.. maybe just a thought here and there and one picture.. may be hard for me but going to try. Have a wonderful day! Marilyn

  4. Missed you, but did not know you had been so ill. What a blessing that you are doing much better.
    Trust you will continue to get stronger. I am 91 now and make what I blog short. I enjoy the comments. Take care.
