What I Was Thinking
The reason was, five years ago when I put myself on the wait list for that place, I was living in and operating out of a place of fear ~ fear of what would become of me, fear of the future, fear of not having enough money to live on, fear of going forward into my later years on my own.
I've changed a lot in the past five years. I no longer have any of those fears, even the fear of not having enough money although I'm still very low income. True, the overriding reason I've been seeking another place to live has been financial. But I learned quickly, last weekend, that giving up my independence to save a hundred bucks a month isn't worth it -- at least it wasn't worth it in the case of that first place.
So I'll see about the second place when it becomes available. But it's going to have to be pretty perfect to get me to leave Rose Cottage at this point.
In other news, I've been doing a bit of watercolor. May be I'll post a couple images next time. I really do love it, but I haven't had a lot of time to devote to it. Seems like there's never enough time to do everything I want to do, even at this point in life, where all my time is my own.
Hope you all have a great week!
