disappointment in others comes from expecting them to adhere to standards we value highly, and sometimes do not adhere to ourselves. for those of us who are less likely to "slip up", this disappointment can be tempered by realistic expectations and, if that does not quell the dark stirrings of the heart, the act of walking away.
in the final analysis, the greatest disappointments are those that we do to ourselves.
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason.
my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find
inspiration in too many things to list, and far too
many more to remember. i have added
sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from
living with a chronic illness, i have learned the
beauty of each day, and treat each as another
sun salutation, and another chance.
P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my
