“Take it all in, it’s as big as it seems, count all your blessings and remember your dreams…” -Jimmy Buffet
This quote was e-mailed to me from my new friend and author, Laura Carter, in Navajo Ranch, Colorado. It is apropos because for 69 years I lived at sea level. Now, I am living in a cozy cabin at 7000 feet above sea level. Though the air is thinner, out the window is a fourteener begging to be climbed.

Sailing was once a passion for me. Still, it remains a metaphor for life. As a lifelong learner my formal education started at age 4. At 70 I continue to learn. From piano and ukulele lessons to deciding what to do during this decade, I challenge myself to improve. As a single septuagenarian I have a comfortable, albeit mundane lifestyle that is searching for excitement. Buy another cruising boat? Hitchhike around the world? Or, something else that intrigues me....What's a woman to do?
