Almost Sunset



josiesoho™

Having 775 square feet of playspace all to myself is such a gift. It's the beginning of a whole new phase of life for me. I decided to forgo renovating my house for now in the interest of developing myself in preparation for what I call my new life.

My children are growing up. I've now got a 17 and a 21 year old. In another year the first one will be contemplating grad school and the second will be entering college. They're a little worried about their mother, afraid she'll run off and leave them to fend for themselves. My peers understand that I'm poising myself to have a focus beyond my children. A safety net against the empty nest syndrome that might hit hard after so many years of single motherhood.

Great picture and great post.

The pictures you post here are exceptionally nice. I've always been a photo bug, and have been taking a lot with my cell phone cam (surprisingly good for what it is), especially since I can take them in black and white...

Anyway, keep up the good work.

Thanks Hal. Cell phone cams are cool. It's not the equipment that matters. It's the eye of the beholder. ;-)

Thank you Helene. Yes, I do still feel lucky and I feel stronger than ever! Thank you!
