Happy New Year 2018! Buon Anno!

31 Dec

Each year at this time, I think about what one thing I’d like to share. My inspiration can come from a multitude of sources, and this year, it came from an email from friends.

They had just returned home from a fun yet hectic Christmas with their children and young grandchildren and penned the following:

… “we’re feeling so privileged that after a pretty busy life of our own we’re finally properly old, with few responsibilities other than to each other!…Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!”

Let me put “properly old” in context – these are people in their 70’s whose daily short walk is 4+ miles and their hikes can be hours on end.

And while our long walks can’t measure up to that of our dear friends, we too have embraced this “properly old” period in our own terms. In 2011, blogginginitaly.com was born with this ABOUT:

Judy and Len

too young to be old and too old to be young,

but just the right age

to be traveling, exploring and sharing our adventures with you.

Little did we know then the places we’d go, the things we’d see, and the people – oh, the great people we’d meet, and continue to meet, as we continue our adventure. “Properly old” can indeed be a great time of life.

My sincere hope for all, as we head into 2018,

is for Health and Happiness,

and that no matter your age,

you embrace life –

Damn those torpedoes, full speed ahead!

Ciao,
Judy
