50

Me, dancing like nobody's watching

Unforgotten youth

Getting ready to soar into the sky

... and feel the sunshine on my face

In two days, I'll be 50 years old. It sounds funny to say since I don't feel that old at all. I remember when I was 17, I wondered what I would look like at 30; when I look in the mirror, I don't see any difference except the usual 'life lines' that come along. Oh, and gray hair, but "Mocha Ash #4" takes care of that. :-)

I don't have any major life plans going on. My greatest accomplishment to date is my autistic son, who has grown into a handsome, amazing 25 year old young man. I like to say we 'grew up with each other.'

I am still a huge work in progress. There are areas of my life that I'm unhappy with; may this milestone let me examine myself deep within & free myself from all the mental blockage that I carry. I hope to speak my mind more freely; allow myself to feel more deeply, grow more confident with myself & be more kind/gentle with and to myself.

May I continue to get wiser in my faith and walk the path God puts before me. May I continue to be kind and compassionate to those in need; may I believe in love for myself and open my heart to the possibilities that "it" could happen to and for me.

But mostly, may I release my inner fears and live my best life. For another 50 years.

Namaste. :-)

Here in my neck of the woods, we didn't get much brilliant fall color as I had hoped. Not enough rain, then hot temps, then cold temps,...
