Tai Chi with Dr Paul Lam

This is one of my favorite songs and one that I dedicated to Fred on his 50th birthday. It's by Gary Allen and helps me remember that we can't pick and choose our struggles or triumphs, but life IS a beautiful ride. We only get to ride once, so make the most of it!! Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death! (from Auntie Mame, 1958)

Life ain't always beautiful
Sometimes it's just plain hard
Life can knock you down, it can break your heart

Life ain't always beautiful
You think you're on your way
And it's just a dead end road at the end of the day

But the struggle makes you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' it sweet time

No,life aint always beautiful
Tears will fall sometimes
Life aint always beautiful
But it's a beautiful ride

Life aint always beautiful
Some days I miss your smile
I get tired of walkin' all these lonely miles

And I wish for just one minute
I could see your pretty face
Guess I can dream, but life dont work that way

But the struggles makes me stronger
And the changes make me wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' its sweet time

No, life aint always beautiful
But I know I'll be fine
Hey, life aint always beautiful
But its a beautiful ride
What a beautiful ride

2 days in a row!!

I'm here again. It's 42 below outside.........really it's only 15 below, but it feels like 42. Why do we live in this state? Because it's beautiful! I have several pictures I want to add to this site, once I figure out how. I've tried three times to download/upload a picture of my beautiful family. It seems to take forever and never get done. Maybe the file is too big or I'm doing it wrong. Whatever. I'll figure it out.
Okay, so I figured it out. Not all of it, but some of it. This is what I'm dreaming of right now. "The Lake" with the loons out in the distance, swimming and playing and calling out to each other. I'm in the hammock, just off the shore, reading a book, probably a good murder-mystery-romance, real juicy.
Anyway, I have some other gorgeous pictures of Minnesota in it's various forms; rainbows, orange leaves, cystalline lakes, and even SNOW and ICE! I'll try to navigate the entire website this weekend and see what comes of it.

This is strange!

This is all Aanenson's fault! I'd read about blogging to keep track of journaling for scrapbooking. Aanenson said she had a blog. Aanenson sent me her blog address. I read it and it had a "create a blog of your own" icon. Now, here we are!

I remember journaling from high school and college. I got a lot of enjoyment from it. I burned those journals once upon a time! :)

So, here I go, into the world of cyber-journaling, writing down my feelings, emotions, wishes, desires for all the world to see. Let's see where it takes us today..............

Remember Me

Sweet Thing
