Too Much Fun
It's been a while but I have been thinking about you and our lives and romance. I hardly know where to begin. Romance is a state of mind. It's a perspective as to how we view life. And it's in all parts of our lives, not just a romance between two people. It's the passion about what's happening around us. It's the love of travel. It's the delight in our friends. It's liking ourselves.
Since I last posted I have given a birthday party for my son and while it was a lot of work, it was also a lot of fun. I saw many dear friends and discovered all the great party food one can buy at the store. While it's difficult to think of cleaning one's house as romantic, I discovered old pictures of dear ones now gone which brought back many wonderful memories.
My friend, partner, love of my life, Harry Borgman, (he now has a blog: harryborgmanartblog .blogspot) drove up from his house to attend another party the night before my son's. Then he helped me the next day with my son's party as did my daughter and grand daughter. The following day we drove back to Harry's which is 100 miles away to attend another party at the Craig Smith gallery where his art is on display. Talk about romance. We have been having entirely too much fun and I, at least, am exhausted. I need to have a boring day!
I think the place to start this blog, perhaps, is at the beginning. While I'll skip over much, I have had an unusual life with I guess you could say a degree in finding romance. It's been an exciting life, not always fun, but almost always interesting. I think part of the reason that I've had a great time is that I've seldom been afraid of trying something new. I've also explored all kinds of things such as health possibilities, astrology, glamour, etc. And so rather than just talking about romance per se, I feel that I would like to talk about the many things that affect the romance of our lives.
In the next post I'll introduce you to a good friend and astrologer, Sheila, who will explain her craft and occasionally give you good dates to look for romance or dates of caution. You'll be able to contact her directly for your specific forecast of possibilities if you wish.
That's all, my friends, for today. I'll get back to you soon. Let me know what you would like me to talk about. Oh, and if you will click on "more about the author" you'll find my second blog, romance after 50. I'm not sure how to access it directly, but will find out soon. In that blog I'll bring you stories directly from my book, "50 Ways to Find Romance after 50" and new interviews as well.
Look for the romance in your life. Your guide, Gloria
