a quick summary of those events:
We began the year on New Year’s Eve with a tornado in our neighborhood; I fell ill in September/October and was out sick until November (whatever it was that made me so sick – it remains undiagnosed – but was possibly a tick related disease (yes, the insect, although I guess they’re technically a spider) really knocked me for a loop; and then my dad’s heart broke (that’s my way of saying he had a heart attack). He is okay, but it sure put everything into perspective.
So I took a little break from our blog, but I missed it so…
Now I am ready to write again. I thought I would write once a week in the coming year – that seems like a good and do-able goal.
I like to “theme” things, so I was thinking I could focus on a “Heart Healthy Year” and then my dad can read the articles and recipes posted here and make sure his heart remains strong…because we love him so.
I will continue writing about fitness as our wonderful friend Jody at Truth 2 Being Fit continues to do on a daily basis (thank you Jody!), and also about vegetarianism/veganism and the beautiful project called the Farm Sanctuary.
Goodness, there is SO much to write about, where do I start?
Let me start by simply saying to all our InPerspire friends, we missed you! We hope you are doing well and are happy!
To all our friends and family, we wish you a very, very Happy New Year. We wish you love and peace and hope that we can be a part of those wishes!
I heard this wonderful interview with Maurice Sendak on NPR yesterday. He talks about many things, but his words about life as we age were very meaningful to me. I thought sharing the link would be the only right and proper thing to do :). You can listen to the interview or read the transcript. Jimmy didn’t get to hear it so we are listening to it together tonite.
