Well, it's been a while since I've updated. I'm writing this while sitting in a very comfy Adirondack Chair, situated on the edge of Mirror Lake. The lake, a calm pool reflecting the slightly overcast sky. Almost True to its name with the exception of on occasional ripple as a couple ducks make their way across. Last year for me, Had started out just as serene. I couldn't have known at that time, how different it would end up.

July 10th of last year also saw me on time off from work. It was a typical hot July day & I was doing something I hadn' done since I was in my 20`s.... I was at the beach laying out in the sun. As I think back I start to smile 'cause it had started to pour & people were scrambling all around hurrying for cover. But it blew over quickly & when I had returned to the beach, mostly everyone had left, leaving the beach as serene as the lake I'm looking at now.
Under any other circumstances I wouldn't be able to recall with clarity what I had for breakfast 3 days ago, let alone, what was going on in my world a year ago. What seems almost prophetic now was a conversation I had with an old friend I ran into at Wegman's after leaving the beach. Our families used to go camping together when we were young. We were remenicing about that & how our parents have aged so, necesitating an almost role reversal in care-taking. Pending death was touched upon. we were talking about our parents though The Universe was conspiring for someone else. Someone much younger. Way too young. (To be cont'd

Summit of Mount Jo 9/24/10 A few friends were worried about me. They were worried about me hiking Mount Jo by myself, so I took this video to show how many people were around that day if I needed assistance. I even chatted with several and had a few people share a glass of wine with me at the summit. :) Mount Jo. 9/24/10 After the crowd left This is what the summit looked like... with no people on it. In the previous video I took, I showed all the people who had made this same hike to her summit.
