Well I am doing just that. It’s hard. And scary. Oh well. And by just that, I mean moving to the other side of the world. At my age. Terrifying. But what the hell. Right.

Actually, I think my husband and I do a pretty good job of embracing life. He probably could have made a lot more money had he been a work a holic like his dad but we have plenty and we work hard but allow ourselves to play hard too.

I am glad to say I am! But life kicked me in the pants to do so. I am quite happy to pick up the knitting loll. When I hit 50 it made me realize life is so dam short. I focus on those people who keep at it. All the things that meant a lot before, nice car, status etc., is meaningless to me. I want happiness, peace and love. Those are the things that motivate me now. So many people at 70 and 80 are living fuller better lives than I ever have.

I think it goes both ways. I (try to) live every day as if it were my last, because it could be.

Get it on, get it up, and get it in. Lyric from Nine Lives.

Find more meaningful work and more rewarding love…..

…hang out with friends or find a lover?

Why not? Because it doesn’t work that way. Some things happen while you live life. Some things happen because you live life. Knowing which is which makes all the difference.

Drive my car off a cliff. Yeah, but my car is so safe I wouldn’t die, I’d just moulder away in the weeds for days until I expired of starvation and dehydration. lol

Run away from it all. Wife, kids, job, home, friends. Disappear to I know not where?

Because that’s not the person I am. I’m not going to disappear just because I’m looking for perfect happiness somewhere. Besides, it would be uncomfortable.

…just write that serial killer novel.
