    Minnesota. Sunny but brrrrrrrr cold .  Blessed to be inside, but eating too much comfort food and watching too much daytime tv!

    However, a spurt of energy has given me the ability to cross off one more item from my “to due” list / purging page after page of hard copy drafts of lOVE IMAGINED.

    It has to do with age, space (lack of), and living in the moment .

    I will be sixty -seven this month, closer to the unknown daily; respectful of my sons who will have to figure out what to do with my “life’s ” stuff after I pass; I recycle frequently.

    My domain is 800 square feet small; I like it clutter free / room for beauty.

    Living in the moment means, for me, to be aware of the past but not to carry it with me/ not to let it weigh me down.

    I lighten my load, periodically,     To breathe, to be able to move forward, and to allow the possibility for love.


    Do you save copies of all your work? Hard copies? Computer copies?  Why or why not ?
