Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I continue to be open to each day as it comes, and continually
taking it one day at a time. It is good to get up in the morning,
enjoy a little breakfast, pop open one of my meditation books for a
short, and do my chi kung routine. I see my daughter and family
when their busy schedule permits. I volunteer to serve as a sponsor
to young children to help them regroup for themselves in the wake
of having an alcoholic adult in their lives. I am involved with
music ministries, one of them, playing guitar for a Hispanic
service, and the other playing lead guitar for an Anglo service. I
also have enjoyed bringing ukulele music and song to various
places. I have gotten so that I have read one heck of a lot of
classics in recent years (Sherlock Holmes, HG Wells Outline of
History, Aesop's Fables, Don Quijote (en Español ), the Frank Baum
books (including the Wizard of OZ), oral interp of readings and
I seem to perpetually spruce up guitar instrumental and vocal
versions of such things as Beatles classics and JT along with some
Jazz classics and playing some banjo for good measure (yeah it’s
eclectic: ranging across jazz, pop, soul/R&B, bossa nova,
blues, classical, folk, bluegrass, ).
In recent years, I also have enjoyed getting back into gardening,
and had a nice vegetable garden last year, and will be on it soon
I make sure that I get to spend time with others most every day,
because I am a people person. It has been fun to go out to movies,
go camping, participate or attend music events, go bike riding,
just spend the time shooting the breeze while taking walks (I like
to walk at least 4 times per week if I can) or sharing bike rides,
or sitting out in front of my fire saucer out behind the house. I
have enjoyed little over nights to places in the state. I also have
been out visiting my son out in San Diego, and going out to visit
my folks and siblings out in the Washington DC metro area.
Also, while my adult kids lead their own lives, I also love
spending time with them. There is nothing like messing around with
ukes together with my little granddaughter and singing little
tunes. It is a total hoot to be live texting with my San Diego son
several times a week to giggle and share perspective on stuff. Life
is good this way.
And of course about all there is breathing in and out and
appreciating being in the moment. Wow, what a deal!
