As I age, I want to simplify my life. My needs are small, and getting smaller all the time. Good health, family, friends. A roof over my head. Food on my table. The essentials taken care of. These are my desires. I no longer pine for lots of extra 'stuff'.

To everything, there really is a season. (well, except this winter, which just DOES NOT want to let go)! When I was young, the dream of having a big house with all the trimmings was very appealing.  But, these days I long for a tiny cottage, condo or beach house...just big enough for two.

Travel is fun, and I do enjoy a journey now and then. But, I seem to be most comfortable curled up in my comfy chair by the fire, living most my wild adventures vicariously through a good book!

It has taken me many years to realize that I have been searching for happiness in the wrong places-always looking on the outside instead of the inside.  I finally see that everything I've always wanted has been right here all along.

Like so many others, I took the long way home.
