Palm Springs getaway

We choose what we value, either consciously or unconsciously.
living the life you want.

Today, mostly cloudy. I always associated cold and gloomy winter to “unhappiness.”
I’m a septuagenarian, coming to grips with the real finality of my age and my impermanence in time.
As I have always said, “carpe diem – live in the moment.”  That’s my philosophy. A year ago, I said “I’ll take the risk in the year 2019, however, gingerly.” and I did. . .
I’m lucky to travel with a person who understands the meaning of check-off bucket lists.
We went to Palm Springs this month, comfortable weather, beautifully manicured cities, many golf courses, and country clubs.
I enjoyed Hot Air Balloon ride and The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
Fred, I can’t thank you enough.
