I think sometimes people immediately think of travel as a substitute for the word ” adventure ” … and feel like they didn’t accomplish much in life if they didn’t travel
and experience the world up close and personal.
Helen Keller couldn’t see or hear any part of the world, since she was blind and deaf, yet she authored the blog title quote today. ” Life is a Daring Adventure or Nothing.”
I have been blessed to have been able to travel to several other countries through historical foundation scholarships and other ” seize the moment” opportunities.
I never regretted any decision to travel. However I think Helen Keller defined ” adventure” differently. Adventure is stretching ourselves outward to embrace the passion within us… waiting to be seen and heard.
My greatest challenge and adventure began after my ” little c” diagnosis and the birth of my first grandchild. It was this blog.
While teaching…my passion for stories and storytelling was met in the classroom and later while traveling and storytelling at educational, civic, community and historical conferences and conventions.
After I retired there was still one passion left-writing. With encouragement from friends and family, instructions from my son-in-law ( ” Now what IS a blog?) my greatest adventure and challenges began. That was over a decade ago and I have never regretted that leap of faith.
So until tomorrow… Don’t ever think that it is too late for another adventure in your life… as long as there is a passion left inside you wanting to get out… there is one more adventure waiting patiently for you to start!

Mollie sent me these photos of the children embarking on the plane to their new adventure-summer vacation. Heading to NH to see Mollie’s family-not seen since Covid! Happy Days are Here Again!
Gardening is always an adventure… and delight!
