As Magellan before me, I navigate the highways and byways of life, landing on unexpected shores. As the rose does, life unfolds in beautifully mysterious ways, ever one petal the more exotic. View the world and it's charms not through jaundiced eyes, but through the eyes of an innocent unsuspecting child. How better to have lived life, than to have shared that life with the many passengers and those who stand alone in the vagueness of the darkest night imaginable. That's me in a nut shell. Not the nut, rather the all encompassing shell. The fruit thus born is thus the sweetest of all, ah, sweet and merciful life God has granted to me, therefore to you.
Grandchildren are orecious ro me and I am heavily involved in their welfare, and interests, however simple they may be at times.
- Learning patience, and understanding, as only one may, having first embraced lesser virtues.
