Most of what I write is what comes to me to be written. I would love to have you suggest topics. I may or may not be able to develop a page, but I would do my best to find my thoughts on any recommended stuff. Worth asking. Please email your suggestions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summer is here, so we anticipate taking walks in the construction zone near the former Harrah’s Ranch. At one time, it was one of the most beautiful estates in Reno. The senior Harrah built a castle as the family residence and raised exotic (Kobi Beef) on his many acres. Today it is all being turned into a vast number of expensive homes which will all be large inside but no more than 6 feet apart! There will be little room for gardens and yards for outdoor living, but the purchase includes membership in the Castle with a gym, indoor pool, dining room, meeting, and card-playing rooms, etc.
In past papers, I’ve described where and how we live, and I believe our facility was once a part of the ranch. In any case, we have interesting walking sites and many parks close by. Also, as the trees and gardens grow, our walks will be that much more enjoyable.
Our love for the outdoors has not diminished because we are old. Still, it’s painful to realize that being in the forest, mountains, and even travel is not ours to do anymore. Yet, we try to get the most out of our walks.
There’s a lesson here, and I am sure it has to do with me telling you to do it all before you can’t. Don’t wait for a time down the road. Travel now. Taste the good wines and foods, visit historical sites, enjoy family and friends, read a good book, and hold important dialogue now. There is no time like the present. As a matter of fact, the present is all there is.
This day is yours now—It will be gone in a flash–Enjoy each moment.
