An after-thought .....

One of the most tragic things

I know about human nature is that

all of us tend to put off living.

We are all dreaming of some magical

rose garden over the horizon

instead of enjoying the roses that are 

blooming outside our windows today.


  1. Hear, hear! God speed Mary Pat, have a great adventure.
    We will read your stories for as long as you write them.

    Cheers, Peter and Shelagh.

  2. I love that quote. We firmly believe in living each day to the fullest because you just never know what tomorrow will bring.

  3. Thanks all. I'm finding it easier and easier to stop and smell the roses. One of the things I really got into on the Mexican and southern US trip earlier this year was anticipating and enjoying every sunrise and sunset. They are glorious.
