Sixty and Spectacularly Solo – Yes!
I am a lifelong introvert. I am in my sixties and enjoy living alone. And I want you to, as well. I began this blog in the hope of helping others feel more comfortable with limited interaction and lack of contact that was sure to continue throughout 2021. Well, 2021 has rolled into 2022. AndContinue reading “SaSS-Y!”
I am experiencing a streak of nostalgia! In the last post I shared memories of cherished Sunday afternoon drives with my Grandfather, and the special treat he sometimes provided by stopping at Dairy Queen®. This recalled another memory. A few years ago, I invited a dozen or so friends to join me in celebration ofContinue reading “Those were the days!”
One of my fondest childhood memories is of afternoon drives with my Grandfather. Every once in a while he would gather the grands on a Sunday and drive out into the country-side. Sometimes it was with my siblings. Others included my cousins. But regardless of who else was along, it was going to be aContinue reading “Re: JOY”

I have been watching re-runs of the HGTV show Home Town. Ben and Erin Napier workContinue reading “On the Way to SaSS-Y!”
We have reflected, connected, committed, and transformed. All on the way to Spectacular. Reached out to old friends. Rekindled faded relationships. Examined ourselves. Determined what kind of SaSS-Y! we want to be. But what about the Spectacular that we used to be? What have we put away, forgotten of our Spectacular past? I recently shiftedContinue reading “Re-Connecting”
Many people feel that being alone is isolating and restrictive. I say it can be nurturing and liberating. Often, we manage our lives, our behavior, even the expectations we set for our future based on what other people want or expect for us. Their ever-judgmental presence lurks as a foreboding shadow over our thoughts. OverContinue reading “Who have you grown to be?”
