Today I am sharing excerpts from my journal, about some of my goals for 2012:
- “Write my first book — Motorcycle Memoir – draft by 8/1/12.”
- “Focus my positive energies in ways to enhance the lives of myself, Cliff and others. Journal to help me with context and staying on track.”
- “Work on organizing/clearing stuff out of house. Keep only what we need and love.”
I added quotes, including this one: ”The love you take is equal to the love you make.” — Lennon & McCartney
I wrote the journal entries yesterday while travelling home from a weekend in North Dakota. Within an hour of writing the words above (and more), the Beatles song The End, with the lyrics I quoted (from the Abbey Road album, recorded in 1969) came on the radio. I felt like I had called it to me. Those are certainly words to live by.
I would like to thank Dorothy Sander, who generously invited me to be a guest blogger. The result was this piece I wrote about Lifetime Learning: Summer Camp for Adults. If you have not yet checked out Aging Abundantly, I can highly recommend it for its inspiring and honest articles on subjects that matter to women. After Dorothy posted my piece, it was linked to, as Summer Fun for Boomers, by ThirdAge.com, a website for boomer women.
I am grateful for this recognition and opportunity to share my writing. Thank you!
