It has been quite a while since I have written in my blog. I have been busy but I really did not find much to write about. Most of the time I want to write down my feelings, however, in the past when I have done so I have been accused of hurting people's feelings. Since that is not my intention, I have avoided blogging at all.
Now, I have arrived to a point in my life where my feelings and concerns are not put on the back-burner for the sake of anothers feelings. Yes, I do care about not hurting anyone in any way, but I too have feelings which must be respected. And respected by me they will be, even if others don't like it.
I have turned the page in this chapter of my journey through life. I am learning Braille, and having a blast doing so. I get out more and I keep myself busy on the Web. I purchased the latest version of ZoomText screen-reading software, and I have purchased a few new tech toys. I feel free and happy. My spirit is one that feels like flying. I am not going to hod it back, I am in flight. I have tried new foods and some of my beliefs have dramatically changed. I now celebrate birthdays, Thanksgiving and the 4th. of July. I enjoy the company of those who enjoy mine. I find that I laugh more often and even though my eyesight has taken a turn to darkness, I am happy with my lot in life. I have been and continue to be blessed.
I am no longer lonely. No, I have not started a relationship with a woman, I have restarted my relationship with life and all it has to offer. I enjoy talking with strangers and meeting new folks. I am more open with my feelings and I find that by being so, people accept me for who I am. And I find that not only do they like me, but I like myself as well.
I am 57 now. I have just begun my life. I hope to continue growing as a person and I hope to continue acquiring knowledge, both book and practical forms. Those who really love me will stand-by-me, others are free to leave, as it were.
I was told more than once that I needed to get a life, well I have a life and I am having a ball.....
