Divorced, retired world traveler, now a Jill of all retired activities, but mistress of none. In other words, I am still searching for activities that knock my socks off. I am an avid fan of football, Lacrosse, hockey, Winter and Summer Olympics, theater, movies, concerts, most music, travel, cruising, meeting new people and learning new things.

My Great American Novel is still in the works, but not completed. I have written many poems which were emotionally healing to write, but as of New Year's Eve, 2011, I decided to stop looking back and start looking forward! Learning to live again helped put me back to my happier than ever self, so I haven't written many poems-- no emotional healing needed, thank goodness!

I am living life again, one day at a time, as though today could be my last day on earth -- one day it will be. Tim McGraw's "Live Like You Were Dying" is the best way to attack each day! ( You can listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9TShlMkQnc )

I have been blessed with a handsome, loving son, who picked a loving wife, who have blessed me with a grandson and two granddaughters. I also have a beautiful, loving daughter who blessed me with two grandsons and one granddaughter and, in 2015, a new son-in-law and two step-granddaughters and one step-grandson. To see them all excel and grow into beautiful young ladies and handsome young gentlemen is always a WOW moment for me. And, a child shall lead them...

The only thing missing in my life now is having a male companion to enjoy the "golden years" with. Maybe that isn't in the cards for me; I haven't given up, but I'm not sitting back and waiting for that to happen. I hope you aren't either! Don't waste time worrying about the future or regretting your past -- instead live today!
