Begin Again is a resilient "senior citizen". Reinventing and restructuring her life has become almost common place for her.

I love music, books, and sitting by the water. Each of these activities brings a sense of life to me.

I've just recently began to dabble in writing again after a tsunami of life changing events in the past years. I hope to discover, once again, a new beginning in the world of imagination and the pleasure of writing.
The greatest gift of all is the love of family.

Begin Again: I pray that 2011 will be a much better year for my family and myself...Hospitals and doctors became our family but not by choice. My honey had four operations on his face for a bacteria that was eating his facial bones and tissue. Last week the doctor said they believe they are on the winning side now..I so hope they are right!

Christmas Day started with a fire in my recently remodeled homestead. Once again we were lucky...The fire was contained and my fire extinguisher from my catering business sure came in handy. It will be a big job but everything can be replaced....Thankfully no one was hurt.

But on a high note...all the family was together and we shared our love regardless of the horrid year. That's what really matters.

I haven't been able to write for ages but I hope the new year will provide me with time for one of my greatest pleasures.

I wish each and everyone of you only good things and much happines, laughter and love.

Happy New Year to all of you..

    adewpearl: Carol, I am so relieved to hear the doctors think you and your husband are now on the winning side of things, and I'm also glad the Christmas fire was contained. I truly look forward to your getting a chance to write for us again :-)

    Subject: Fw: Fw: Old People

    I'm not saying you're old! Makes ME proud to say I'm OLD!

    I never really liked the term "Old Person"
    but this makes me feel better about it.

    I got this from an "Old Person" friend of


    I'm passing this on as I did not want to
    be the only old person receiving it.
    Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called,
    as you will see.
    Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem.
    Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
    Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peace-keeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam ..
    If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he will apologize.
    If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady.
    Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.
    Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
    Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
    Old People have moral courage and personal integrity.
    They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
    It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

    This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

    We need them now more than ever.

    Thank God for Old People.
    Pass this on to all of the "Old People"
    you know.

    I was taught to respect my elders.
    It's just getting harder to find them.
