|GLAD TO KNOW THAT ALL IS WELL. YOU 'SOUND' FINE. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED SINCE YOU'VE BEEN AWAY. GEORGE, WHO WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, WONDERED ABOUT YOU AND I FIGURED YOU WERE STILL 'SETTLING IN' AFTER YOUR MOVE. I GUESS IT MUST BE IN THE AIR, BUT WE 'SENIORS' ARE GETTING A SECOND WIND AND REALIZING THE BEAUTY OF IT. WELL DONE OFFERING AND THANKS FOR SHARING THE BEGINNING OF MANY MORE FINE WORKS TO COME. BLESSINGS AND LOVE,

|So really great to see you writing again, Eileen! And bringing us inspirations to think about. What is that saying?...It's not the years in our life, but the life in our years. Something like that. Our Motto :o) Be taking care of yourself, dear friend!! Ain't having your good eyesight back a blessing? Made good difference in my life 10 years ago; started seeing the little piss-ants in my back yard again...LOL
Blessings and Love to you - Micke

|WELCOME HOME! I can so relate to this thoughtful and self-reflexive write, Eileen, and have felt this way since coming very close to death in 1990. It's like you have walked through a door and back again and are confident that there is very definitely something out there in the Great Beyond which now shapes your world-view and how you relate to this material plane of existance. I genuinely have trouble understanding which side of the door my real life currently exists on at times! :)) Love the mood and tone of this and the final two lines which are like a fantasia escape from the otherwise very concretely described setting of your poem. Hope eyes, hands and other hitherto problem areas are much-improved these days, notwithstanding domestic crises! And that your new home continues to bless and delight. Fabulous to have you back. xx|

|I couldn't help but think of the statement "youth is wasted on the young." Like you, I find that as I contemplate the beauty around me it brings to focus what life is really all about.
I am with you in prayer ... that your family crisis is on an upward spiral and glad to have you back.
God bless you,
