FOREVER YOUNG - it's great to be back

Hi everyone

It's been sometime since I've posted on my blog, and it's great to be back.

I've been through a rough couple of years, and now I want to share with you some more bits and pieces of my life with you.

I'm still working on my script, and it should definitely be finished by the end of this month, and all set to go. 

And my new hobby is e-bay.

Now it's time to start decorating the house and make it look festive.  You're never too old to feel young, even though the latter is becoming more of a reality everyday. But then who wants to admit they are getting up there in years, not I, that's for sure. lol.

And now that the Christmas season is upon us, the shopping and baking begins. But I'm happy to say, my shopping is just about finished, but baking well that's another story. I will just have to wait and see if my baking turns out good or bad, because like anything else, one should bake from the heart.

So now that I've shared something of my life with you, have a great day and remember to stay FOREVER YOUNG.

FOREVERY YOUNG- it's Sunday morning

It's Sunday morning to be precise it's 9:37 am. I am thinking about what I should do today. There are so many avenues I can take, but there is always one that sticks in my mind, and that is to work on my script that I've been writing for two years.

The reason being, it was written with the idea of becoming a TV series, and it did win in a major script competition in the TV category, not the whole series, I just wrote a pilot one. But I figured if someone liked it, they would option to buy it, then write and produce it.  One can dream, right..

I also have a partner that is 86 years old, and he came up with the idea, and of course I embellished on that and came up with the storyline, and wrote the script. But now I 'm revising it to be a full script for film, rather then for TV, which takes me more time then most, because of this nagging injury I still have,  and unfortunately will never go away, so I've coped.. what else can one do..

And off to review, which I've already had one critique, with some very good advice and suggestions..

And since it's a beautiful day here, I will  try to sit outside for a little while, and just breathe in all the beauty around me, and hope wherever you live, the sun is shining as well.

Therefore, this beautiful sunny day, will always be FOREVER YOUNG.

Well hope everyone is doing good.  It's been a while I know, but this summer has definitely been a trying one, because I had to say goodbye to some loved ones.

Just lost my brother-in-law, only 56 years old. Too young to die. My husband is taking it pretty hard, since he is the oldest of nine, and took care of his younger siblings. And I'll always remember him as a young boy in my wedding, with his long blond hair, and how he loved to eat.

And before we received this shocking news, I had lost my uncle, my mother's brother a few weeks before, he was 92 ...And when I was a young teen, he would visit our house on Saturdays, and bring vegetables and fruit from the market to my mother.. he just liked to get dressed up everyday.

And if you remember my last entry, I lost my mom last year, but I just buried her ashes a month ago at the cemetery, reliving it all over again, but now I can visit her often, and can talk to her anytime and no pun intended, she can't holler at me, or we can't disagree, but we also can't laugh together either, yet for some reason when I had her ashes with me, it was difficult to look at, because I just didn't want to believe she was really gone... But I fulfilled her final wish, and now I have closure. She also lived a long life, 88 1/2 years old.

Well that's about it, and hopefully the next time I make an entry on my blog, I will have some great and funny stories to share with you.

Thank you for understanding why I had to write this, for my heart can only take so much pain, and this is my way of letting go.

FOREVER YOUNG- getting my feet wet once again

Hi everyone

Yes I know it's been a while, but it's been a rough year for me since I lost my mom.  It will be one year this coming week, and still I haven't realized she is gone.  And with all the preparations and details I had to take care of, the grieving is just beginning, sad to say.

 But, I'll always remember she lived to a great age of 88 and 1/2 and would have been 89, so sooner or later, I would have had to face the inevitable. Don't we all.

Life is a precious gift, and I hope to use mine to it's fullest, even though at times I feel it's at a standstill, I believe God has a plan for all of us, and we just have to sit down, take a deep breath and figure out what it is, although the years for me are flying by, and I'm certainly no young chicken, but I'm not ancient either, and your age is only a number, it's how you feel inside that counts, at least that's what I keep telling myself. So there is still hope for me... lol... I truly believe this...

 I also remember, when I was twenty-five, I felt like fifty, because I had twins and that certainly took a lot of energy out of me, and then four years later, my daughter, so you see you don't have to be old to feel old, your children will make you feel that way no matter what age you thought you would like that analogy.

Okay, to continue, nothing big is happening right now, just trying to get my feet wet once again, trying to work myself into a daily writing routine, but my injury doesn't allow me to stay at my computer for a very long time, in fact, only for a short time, but what I can write in that time will hopefully be something good....

My injury has become a part of me, and I've come to realize after all these years that I do have limitations, even though I don't like it, and don't like telling people, and the fact that you can't see my injury( and I look good, well hopefully good on the outside), because it involves my back, neck, tissues, muscles, lack of mobility and numbness of the fingers, which is why it takes me so long to type, and then I make mistakes, which is frustrating, but you know what, I don't feel sorry for myself, I just keep plugging away, and I keep most of my pain to myself, because people just don't understand what I feel... and it's also difficult to explain

So given that, and not trying to make you depressed by reading my blog, I just had to get this off my chest, more or less, so I can begin writing my blog with a clean slate, to continue writing.. making my characters come alive, living through them and wanting to know everything there is to know about them, and to share my blog and my experiences with my loyal readers..... hope you're still out there.

take care, and please stay FOREVER YOUNG

FOREVER YOUNG-this is the beginning for me

Hi Everyone.  looks like a new set-up on my blog, I like it.

Catch up time.... well I've been busy with so many things.

I ended my writing group after seven years.  The teens were all graduating this year, and the adults just have a very busy life schedule, that many either couldn't make the meetings or when they came , didn't have enough time to write... and that's okay, because in life we are usually presented with situations that are beyond our control, and that's one of the many reasons I had to end both groups...

I will  miss them all, and I hope they all continue to follow their creative dreams and become the writer they want to be, and if not, just to enjoy the process of just writing whether it's for themselves or others, or if they want to be published or not.....

So now  I have all the time in the world to write, yet I still haven't written something big, but I did start out small and that's by entering writing competitions of 100 words or less for a story, and a poem I'm pretty proud of.... has a sense of humor, I believe..etc.. and I actually sent out my original TV pilot script, and no I haven't heard anything about it, and yes it did win in a competition, still given all that, chances are it will get lost among the thousands of others I'm sure... but that's the name of the game.. wish I knew someone, like a magician, who could just pull it out of the stack of scripts and say here, this is a good idea, let's see what we can do with

But at least this is the beginning, AGAIN for me.

And now that I found my blog again, lol.. and my voice whichever you prefer.. I'll try to write each day and hopefully share with you the many pieces of my life.. hopefully it will be humorous,  maybe a little drama, well not too much drama.... even I will hesitate to read, for the mere fact I don't want to relive it again... there goes that word AGAIN...

 I hope you continue to enjoy reading my blog..... comment if you want to, always welcome, and tell your friends and family to tune in.

 And even though my age, might not be your age, I hope you can relate to some of the things I have to say, and if you can't, well just imagine yourself in my place..

so stay always and FOREVER YOUNG

FOREVER YOUNG- a lazy Sunday

Sunday, a lazy day for me. I just want to sit back and not think or worry about anything, even though my brain sometimes doesn't want to shut off, but I will give it my best shot.

Hope everyone has a beautiful day.. nothing new to report except I've sent my script out, and now it's just waiting for the feedback.... and tomorrow I will write the next page in my short play.. there are only 10 pages and the next one will be six, with four more to go.

Let me know what you think after the full ten pages are posted...  I would appreciate that, if not, well I hope you enjoyed reading about Van Gogh and there will be more pages to follow down the road.

so take care

and try to have a day of rest, and spend time with loved ones, or friends, because Sundays will always be

FOREVER YOUNG- snow isn't my thing

Hello to all who visit my blog.  I will be continuing to share my one act play about Van Gogh's Dilemma tomorrow, but wanted to just pop in, just to say hello.

Looking outside my window, I can see the once snow covered streets and grass are quickly melting, which I'm thankful for, since I've lived in the mountain region for many years, and had to fight my way through snow and ice etc.  Not to mention as a child growing up in a big city, I also had to fight that cold and snowy weather.

So for me, snow isn't my thing... because I've had enough to last a lifetime. 

And yes, I realize many of you love snow, and can't wait to go skiing, and sit by the fireplace with your friends or loved one, drinking hot chocolate, or having a warm toddy to drink. And that sounds good to me, (yes us old folks like that as well), but I can do that without all the white powdery stuff.

So right at this moment, the sun is shining bright, and warming up, melting the snow, and I'm feeling happy and full of energy...well not quite energetic, because it is late noon, and in the afternoon, one tends to get lazy........ but still I'll sit back and enjoy what's left, of this beautiful day.

So as you know, snow isn't for me, but I'm afraid it will always stick around, and therefore will always be FOREVER YOUNG

FOREVER YOUNG- soon, a theme and subject

It's Wednesday, and it's been raining for the last few days.. I never thought I would be so sick of rain... it makes everything seem so dreary, and the aches and pains won't end... hopefully we'll see the sun soon, and maybe it will stay out for least I hope so.

I haven't been writing in my blog for sometime, but when I do,  I will be picking a subject and theme and hopefully will stick to that.

It's sort of an experiment with me.... I just have to find what I want it to be.. and make it interesting and exciting......  so it might not be for a while, then again it could be tomorrow, because one never knows what will happen.

And I want it to be funny, with a little drama maybe, because laughter is the best medicine, don't you agree... life is too short to always live in the dark, let's put some lightness back in the air.

So until next time, I will try to remain, FOREVER YOUNG

FOREVER YOUNG-The day at the vets with lump lard

Well today was a big day for my dog Ralph, who of course was nicknamed lump-lard because of the way he waddles when he walks.

My husband took him to the vets and had his teeth cleaned and  then he removed two of his teeth because they were about to fall out, so he's somewhat out of it,  you could say groggy, or high, whatever term you want to use when your out of it, or out of space....but that's to be expected after the morning he had.  

And Ralph just takes everything in stride.. nothing seems to bother him... everything just seems to roll off his back, okay tummy, because he loves his tummy to be rubbed.. but then who doesn't, only kidding...

And now it's Clyde's turn..  next week, and that  should be a treat.... he probably will ask the vet for a Wawa, yes he can actually speak that word whenever he wants a treat... and won't stop until you give him one..... that should surprise the vet... that's if he asks, but more likely he will say let me out of here, leaving every word out, but the actual word OUT because he can only say that word... smart dog. and just too demanding, but he wouldn't be Clyde if he wasn't...

So I have one lay back dog, and another that tells it like it is.. Two different personalities, but two very special dogs that we love dearly.

Well I guess that's about it for now... and even with a horrible cold, I just had to write this in my blog, since it's been a while since I've written anything.... so I will try to commit to my blog every day, okay maybe every other day, okay maybe once a week, but whatever and whenever it will be, I will write something eventually.
