Whoever penned this statement was most certainly a gardener or a farmer, for those that live closest to the earth are not only the most tolerant of nature’s ways, but the most forgiving–even when droplets fall at the most inconvenient of times. 🙂

I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have however been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. This is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes, I’m in Capable.. and I go there more often as I’m getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart. At my age, I need all the stimuli I can get!

And sometimes, I still think I’m in Vincible… but life shows me I’m just not!!

Have a splendid weekend, everyone!

My ninety-year-dear old friend, Francesca took several tulip bulbs from a paper sack, instructing me as she threw them, “Dig the holes precisely where they fall.  The tulips will look far more natural, and you can learn a most valuable lesson from the experience.  Grow where you are planted! Life has a way of hurling us in all directions.  Some of us grow and bloom, while others complain and die.  When I’m ready to die, I’ll quit planting bulbs. Until then, I’ll have something to always look forward to in the springtime.”

I am so ready, awaiting the arrival of this season’s tulip bed to come alive with it’s splendid colors, and warmth of the season.

…. and yet, timing is everything. If it’s meant to happen it will, at the right time and for the right reasons.
