“Oh, where is the sea?”, the fishes cried, as they swam its crystal-clearness through.
I’m nearing the end of life. I’d love to have my resources extend just to the end of my time here. A friend agreed this week to give me the value of my house now, in cash, but allow me to stay here until I pass on. Such a sweet gift. It gives me a sense of security in my nest and saves me from burdening anyone with inherited wealth.

It invites me to examine what I may need that I have been unaware of. A time for introspection and discernment. A time of gratitude and care. Care to choose wisely.

A naughty cat?
I think cats are the only perfect creatures. Ask one, they’ll agree
I can regret causing pain even if that was the way the wind blew that day.
I do not have to beat myself up for being human.
Thank you, Sarah, for such honest intospection
