In Ten Years…

In ten years, I hope I will…

Continue to share my life with my husband Ray

Enjoy good health

Live a stable and happy existence

Stay close to my children, their spouses, my grandchildren, and, hopefully,

a couple of unborn grandkids

Remain in close contact with my extended family and friends, near and far

Spend lots of time out in nature

Stay engaged in the world around me

Continue to pursue my passion for the written word, through both reading and writing

Remain connected to Story Circle Network

Actively participate in my spiritual community

Learn new things, go to new places, meet new people

Give back to others

Live in gratitude

Savor here and now

Operate as a safe and consistent friend

Age with grace

    Thought-provoking, Len. At eighty-four I find it impossible to think ten years ahead, because the question of whether I will still be around seems to linger. I was impressed that a friend, a year older than I am and in poor health, made a reservation for April 24 to see the eclipse in the Hill Country. I thought that was optimism.

  2. Hi Judy. Yes, I’ll be 80 in 10 years, and thought of you and Susan/a and was aware I could consider what I might be doing. I understand that by 84, ten years is a different equation. I am impressed with your friend’s optimism!
