The Green Study is a blog I always look forward to reading. The blog amazes me because I often find words expressing my thoughts better than I can verbalize them.

So, I’ll use the questions in The Green Study post as my prompts for today.

Both will inevitably change despite my daily regimen and rigorous planning for the future. How long will these health factors remain strong, and how will I cope as they diminish over the years to come?

What has given you great joy/comfort/laughter?

My granddaughter’s FaceTime calls when she just wants to say Hi.
My grandson’s smile of newly emerging teeth.

A day with no commitments, open to spontaneity and endless possibilities.

What’s your best advice at the moment of others?

Don’t take negativity to heart, and don’t take positivity for granted.

I will write even though I am afraid that this is the only place I will ever be read.

I will write at peak loneliness when I’ve been communicating nonstop from this little weird virtual island I call my desk.

I will write while asking myself is it worth it?

I will write even though it has all been said before.

I will write…
