The times they are a changing!

My ” three score and ten” natal celebration on July 8,seems to have marked a watershed in my life!
I’ve finally started trying things I’ve dreamed of since my teen years:
Gliding
Going back to theatre work;
Chorister;
and being “ME”
For so long,I have been : Mrs C; mother;corporate wife;farmer; trying to be a fibre artist………..
and now,it’s “enough already”—
what I do now is for “ME” and no one else.
I no longer have to worry about tidal surges affecting others………..

Lately I have joined into not only choral groups; Indoor bowls groups; Theatre workshop group;
Gliding;Japanese conversation (more about that later) Sight singing and vocal techniques;but I feel so ALIVE………………….!!

To my older online friends

Don’t wither away and die: Use your talents!!

We are dead a very long time…………….use it or lose it!

  1. Congratulations, and happy birthday!

  2. You rock Maureen–or should I say “you fly”

  3. Yeah – good for your. It’s time you did things for yourself – although I still wonder how you even had the nerve to get into that glider let alone fly it…vbg. Have fun and enjoy yourself. As you say – you’re a long time dead.

    Hugs
