I suppose it is because as the sand of the hours glass pass through, it is important for me, at least to do meaningful, and substantial things, I feel as though time is at a premium, and my time is important, more now then ever...
Gone are the flittering thoughts of my youth, "I have the rest of my life" for this or that...live for right now, instant gratification. I don't have alot of things I would like to do, but what what I do have are large, for lack of a better word. Will I ever do them? Who knows...for they are dreams and sometimes they do come true..
They are simple, but yet complex, relying on various variables and circumstances, none of which are on the radar at this time..
1. Ireland...I want to go there. Tipperary in particular, where my ancestors are from on my fathers side. This would be a rather large undertaking and I would say quite substantial..
The thing I really like about blogging is the connection to anyone around the world in an instant...I've visited Tipperary many times surfin the web. Remember pen pals? I'd love to have a blogging pal from Ireland..so if your out there, or if you know of someone...and if they crochet....:)
2. Sanibel Island..Florida closer to home to be sure, but about a 14 hour drive...maybe isn't closer...but it is in the US....Seashell capitol of the world they say...wandering along searching for shells, trinkets and treasures on beach....
3. Have a wee bit of land, and farmhouse with a barn..
I don't desire the latest fashions, telephone, fad type things...Never been like that, and probably at this age it is safe to say I never will..I'm glad about that.
That's it, just those 3 things....but they are BIG things... I may just have to settle for sitting in the sand box, in my back yard, crocheting Irish Roses...but if that's how the cookie crumbles...I guess that I will be thankful I was able to that....
" What will be will be " Que sera sera, as Doris Day sang out...remember her? Pretty wasn't she?
