Who Am I? What Am I Doing Here?

Have you ever thought about doing something special but never imagined yourself doing that something because life called you to do some other things. Maybe you thought you did not have the talent to do that something. Perhaps you believed more in those imaginary critics who would confirm your own fears of failure than you believed in your actual ability, quenching your own desire to just try.

All of the above described me.

Sharon Rose, a beautiful name for a beautiful woman with a beautiful spirit, wanted to start a journaling class and I signed up first. I didn't give myself time to think about signing up because all of the above excuses would have jumped on me like fleas on a dog causing me to be distracted by them and to miss the moment that would begin to change my life. Thank you Sharon.

I guess we can have a mid-life crisis at any age and maybe this is what I am going through but I am taking it as far as I can into the next decade. As of writing this I am soon to be 69. I might just have lost some of you younger readers but if you stick with me you might just learn how to live your life to the fullest every day and at any age. That is my wish for you. Anyway, I decided, why not make my 70's the best decade of my life.

So, here goes...I am taking Italian lessons on Babbel.com (not sponsored). I am planning a trip (about 2 years from now) to Italy to see some tourist sites and then settle in a house by the ocean on one of the islands for one full month where I can really learn the language. Until then I will write about my daily journey to get there as well as write ideas and thoughts about life in general. That is where this blog comes in.

Oh, by the way, I was given the chance to learn Hand Signing (for the deaf). Why not? All of this processing is about two months old. I did mention something about mid-life crisis, right? I think its got me bad. Anyway, come with me on this journey.
