Out of the blue today: Is life real? or an illusion?
I vaguely remember growing up, going to school, getting a job, playing oboe, graduating.
Then there was that accident the night after graduation, with my 2 friends, Susie and Marilyn.
Somehow we escaped without any consequences.
After that? College, still working, woodwind quintets and getting engaged to be married.
I didn’t want to get married.
But I did.
Not a great idea.
14 years later, I was a career woman, taking care of a sick husband, and living in Nebraska, until the marriage dissolved.
A chance meeting with, the “love of my life”.
5 years later, my career was really my “love.”
He moved West.
Met crazy Jim.
Another wild marriage.
30 years later, a widow.
What’s it like to be free after all those years?
Just doing what I like, each day.
My friends: “Hey, what are you doing tomorrow?”
I really don’t know, until I wake up and figure it out.
Free falling, that’s me.
Nothing can compare to living for the moment.
Spontaneity: It is the ultimate high.
Yes, I had wonderful moments in the past.
And many not so wonderful days.
Looking back, I made it through the best and the worst times of my life.
I don’t know if all of that was real or I have been illusionary.
The past is gone forever.
Just a dream.
But today: it was spectacular, because I could kick back, enjoy my friends, act a little crazy and just be me.
Life: Reality? or an illusion?
Whichever, It is a hoot!
