I've always kept a collection of treasures in a blue binder.  These treasures might include a photo clipped from the newspaper or maybe an article of importance will be torn from the pages of a magazine.  Sometimes it would be something I've written myself.

As I accumulated these treasures, patterns began to emerge.  Passions, yearnings, ideas, etc.  When I turned 50, a dear friend gave me a leather bound journal and pen.  She said, "Now write."  I took my time thinking about what would be entered on to those pages.  I look forward to sharing some of these old treasures along with those yet to come.

At mid-life, things I once knew have shifted dramatically.  I now am looking at the future through different eyes.  I wasn't as prepared as I thought I'd be for this next chapter!  So, here I am - writing, sharing, exploring, remembering - join me, I welcome the company.
