Hey Janet,Because I am one of the elderly people with underlying health conditions which pushes me to the top of the list of the coronavirus vulnerable I’ve been contemplating my place in the world. As lives are tragically lost in unimaginable numbers I find myself often pondering the inspiration, influence and love of other human beings lost in a plume of breath last taken.After my brush with eternity last year I thought - what if I could go back. What would I say to my struggling younger self that would assure her then, that she would experience a life well lived now?And suppose I did that in 100 words or less.You know where I’m going here. Yes, a non-fiction contest.Encouragement, assurance, sympathy what would you say to your younger self regarding your journey? Flatten life’s speed bumps or pedal to the metal?The prize? No prize. No judging. Simply a chance to share with reiders a personal moment during crazy tines while visiting the safety of the reif. (Perhaps you could join in).Stay well stay safe,Carolynn
