Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.

So my life has taken another rather interesting turn.
Most people who are in my life already know by now
that I am no longer getting married. It has been
hard in a lot of ways with a million different emotions
going through me on almost any given day.
I'm much happier now in
many ways, but there are certain emotions of guilt
and sadness... just to name a few.

HOWEVER, I have been so very lucky to make a new
set of friends here in my own city of Saint John.
I was out at a Jimmy Swift Band concert and was
introduced to Tidby by my friend Bruce.. the rest they
say is history. It is a wonderful blessing to find people
with whom I just connect and so very much enjoy.
So since then it has been a great time trespassing on
Patridge Island exploring the old tunnels and such
from the war days (using a light sabre as a form of
flashlight - see photos).. a couple of bonfires with a great
group of people. Plenty of great and deep hammock
chats... great meals cooked for me... and more laughs
than I think I've ever had in such a short span.
Tomorrow I plan to fly a kite with Tidby....

So all of this has got me thinking about how important
friends are in our lives. Outside of family they are
hopefully those who we create so many wonderful
memories with. I have been lucky to have some really
great friends thus far along my life. They may not be
huge in numbers, but they have been deeply important
in my life. I welcome these new friends who from the
very first moment never judged me, made me laugh and
welcomed me with open arms into their circle of friends.

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not
born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a
new world is born." - Anais Nin

Tidby being the wonderful "geek" that he is!! Love this pic

Andrew and I talking religion... and the meaning of life

It has been way to long, I completely agree. I am doing OK.. I'm actually doing more than OK. I am happy, and that is something I am loving being able to say. Life is an open road right now, perhaps not what I expected but I really am OK.
Thank you for asking!
