The Beginning of the Gray Haired Lady Blog

I look around me and see people my age and even younger and think - jeez, what is wrong with them? They look so tired and worn out and old! How can that be? They're MY age! Maybe I'm one of the fortunate ones who has lived an exciting life, and continues to live an interesting and adventurous one, regardless of the fact that I am more than 55 and considered over the hill by a lot of people. I used to think the same until I got here! And it's a mind-blower! The body says one thing and the mind says something else - and I sure prefer my mind's point of view! It still thinks I'm 18!

But this blog will be a journey through life as a 56 year old who is as interested in the world as any young thing and who cannot even comprehend the idea of really getting old. Someone who thinks of herself as alive and vibrant and ready to take on any adventure. Bring it on!
Sure there are days when things just don't feel that good, my elbow hurts or I find a new wrinkle - but I'm healthy and sort of active - I know, I know, I should be doing more exercise, but somehow I am always so busy that the time slips away and before I know it, it's time to turn in.
So today I set up this blog and will, intermittently, post things and thoughts and trips and trials and tribulations. Oh and pix too.
